Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
(1 Cor 16:13)

Paul’s rousing exhortation is a popular one among Christian men, and is always good to make us stand a little taller, bow up, and inwardly resolve a little deeper to play the man. Yeah, but what kind of man? While the world and the modern church have proffered many definitions, the Scriptures and the historic church present one consistent picture and model: The Man of Jesus. A man of paradoxes: shockingly bold, yet characteristically serving. Strongly leading, yet submissively following. What does it mean to truly live as one of Jesus’ Men?
