FOR MEN ONLY: The Men the World Craves for
The world is starving, hungry for a breed of men that will
chart the course that generations will emulate. The dire need for men who will blaze
new trails in unknown territories is at its zenith.
The world craves dreamers. Men who can dare to cast a vision
for their lives. The world craves pioneers who fear not for they see the
future. They believe, they perceive and they are sensitive to the power of
Christ Jesus leading them. The world craves the likes of father Abraham, living not
by what they see but by what they perceive. But alas! The world desires not
dreamers without action. The difference lies in their pursuit of those dreams.
If you are a dreamer, you need to know that as long as we see nothing in
action, you fall in the category of a rock, tree and wall. Ambition without direction!
The world requires more that your grand ideas and fashionable speech. Countless
men have told the women in their lives how they have the grand idea of making
things run like clockwork. They stand above the rest but only as long as time
allows. The jaws start squeaking and the hearts are broken. Dreams not
followed. Words not actualized and promises not kept. Let’s face it, even if we
were as tough as Bruno and came from Mars we will never catch grenades for
anyone or stand in front of any train. The world craves dreamers all
right…dreamers with action.
The world craves heroes; men who save the day even if they
are not recognized. There is a reason why the masked vigilantes in comic books who stop
diabolical plans are called heroes. They do it selflessly. It could even cost
their lives but it matters not. They are the heroes, seen or unseen. The
analogy from a comic sounds ideal because it is what the world really craves
for. Men who swear to their own hurt and give sacrificially. Men who endeavour
to use their gifts for the good of mankind and to serve others. Men who give up
their comfort so that others may prosper. Men who sacrifice their time and
their money. But alas! The world desires not heroes without character; men irresponsible
in their speech, disciplines and commitments. Heroes without character perish
and nobody wants to be around them when their sins find them out. You cannot
keep a man with character down and neither can you uphold a man without
character. The world craves more.
The world craves warriors; men who fight for what is good
and what is right! Men who stand up to defy the odds. Men who will not stand as
their sisters, daughters and wives are misused, abused and confused by a
provoking world! Men who stand by their word and do not budge to the threats of
facing trouble for doing what’s right. But alas! The world desires not warriors
without knowledge from the Word of GOD. Such men are perishing despite their battle prowess. Men championing and fighting without their heads in the word of God are not warrior to last. The rapid degeneration of society isn’t news.
Championing for morality and what Christ says is called insensitive. It isn’t the
cool way to go so we’d rather blend in. But the world needs men to stand by the
words of Jesus and call sin, sin. For the sake of the children and for the sake of eternity. For the sake of the ones rolling their eyes as they read this because these words will come alive in time. You can tell a warrior without knowledge.
Folly loves violence. All will be justified with
time. The bang of a mallet will no longer decide morality. The words “human
rights” will no longer determine what’s right. And our lives will no longer be
our lives to do as we please. A moral compass established by the words of a
supreme one God will. The words of Christ Jesus!
Blessed will be the dreamer with an action, the hero with
character and the warrior with knowledge. The world craves such men.
