Young Men Who Love God

This picture was taken before Jon and Alyssa's wedding.  It is a picture of the groomsmen with their arms around each other in a circle praying for the upcoming wedding and marriage.  It is an incredible picture.

The young men you see in the picture are godly, young men.  They walk with Jesus.  They are hard-workers and love others.  This verse exemplifies their lives ~

Likewise urge the young men to be sensible;  in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach. 
Titus 2:6-8

Many lament the fact that there are so few good men around.  There are good men around.  They may be few and far between {a remnant} but there are some.  Some have come from great families and others have overcome difficulties to become the men God requires of them.

So take heart, young women, if God can save your soul, he can definitely find the perfect spouse for you!

Mothers, train your sons in the ways of the Lord ~ Love God.  Love others.  Work hard.  Encourage them to get an education or a life skill that can provide for a family.  Go to church.  Help their neighbors.  Be men of God.  Love their wives and children. 

This world needs more men like these young men.  These are the kind of men I would like to see leading families, churches, and our country...

The following comments are taken from an article written to men by Dave Daubenmire asking where all the real men are today. If you read this, let me warn you that he can be offensive but he sure does get his point across!

We are nothing more than sniffling, powerless, pampered, pabulum eating, weak-kneed off-spring of the King of Kings. I question if most of them are even saved. Wake up Christian!! The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells inside your mortal body!! It is time to come out of the closet.

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love
I Corinthians 16:13,14
