There are certain rules that men live by. If you are not a man you can probably google various list from humorous to realistic to perverted. If you are, you already know many of them (like leave an open urinal between you and the next guy.)
This past Sunday, being Father’s Day, our pastor preached on 1 Cor. 16:13-14. The first time I heard a message on this passage was in 2008 when I was listening to another message by Francis Chan. During his message, Chan began to tell a story of attending chapel at seminary (much like he does at the 15 min mark in this video). He refers to a message by John MacAuthur (like this one) in which these verses were used:
“Be watchful, astand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
Let all that you do be done in love.”
While Chan focused on verse 13, our pastor also brought verse 14 in the mix and I think with good cause.
