“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” John 1:7
The above passage states that when we walk together in the light and fellowship with one another, Jesus Christ purifies us from all sin. I believe it means that if we discipline ourselves by having others around us to help keep us from sin, we can win the battle more than if we fought it alone.
Men we do life together in the eye of our one true Father in Heaven. He created us to do something more than sit in the back and watch the world walk by us. We have a mission to make all things true in God’s eyes. We are here on this earth to save lives. The catch to saving lives is that we cannot do this alone. We may be able to save one, two, three and so on so forth lives, but who will help save our own lives?
True fellowship with one another is a key aspect of our Kingdom Men lives. We do life together, not separate, and not only when we feel like it. No, every day of our lives we must break bread. We need to converse through the good times and even more so in the bad times. We grow stronger together as a unit. I have seen men who are great leaders but still have no one else to hold them accountable for their actions. I have seen great leaders who have fallen on their own sword because they did not have that brother who really got into his behind about his decisions he has made. Many men do not have that true discipline in their fellowship to keep them from straying away from God’s true path for them.
I have a cohort team that has been built on true fellowship. I have stated to my brothers that this journey will not be easy and will be the hardest they have ever faced. If you are willing to go into battle with me, then strap up and let’s move as one. The reason I say this to my men is because I want true Bulldogs around me. I want men who can truly live life together and hold not only me accountable but others.
This band of brothers has helped me through a lot in the past year in a half. I have gone through so much loss and depression. I originally believed I could handle it myself with God alone, but I still needed to speak with my brothers who could help me through the pain and suffering. They could just be there for me to just listen and not speak. I used to fear speaking with other men because of how some would judge or even spread my testimonies to others that did not need to hear it causing chaos for me. But God has chosen the right people in my life that I can call true brothers who have talked to the right people in certain situations and also got in my behind when I have fallen into pornography’s hole again. They have truly pushed me to be a better man of God and not a man of the world.
Put your listening caps on gents. Tomorrow we will speak on an art that some of us are not good at and this is what pushes men from brotherhoods. We will dive into the training of the Discipline of Silence. Bulk-up it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
Daily Battle Order:
Look into your life and see if you have that discipline around you. If you have that true fellowship to help you stay the course towards God’s will. If you don’t then reach out to us, and we can help you through that journey towards True Fellowship and Brotherhood. Make a change in your life and don’t be afraid of being held accountable because we want you to hold us accountable as well.
