Men Are Called To Be Spiritual Leaders| EP. 211

Being the spiritual leader of your house is the highest calling you have as a man.” – Jeff Reimold

This week we close out our Faith Conversations for Men Series as we talk about man’s highest calling, being the spiritual leader of your home. What does it mean to be the spiritual leader of your house? Are you modeling your faith well for your wife and kids? Ephesians 5 calls us to, “Love your wives as Christ loved the church.” Being the spiritual leader of your home is the highest calling you have as a man! Men, take this role as the spiritual leader of your home serious. The responsibility is huge, but you don’t have to hit a home run on day one. If you feel as if you don’t know where to start or feel like you’ve messed it up in the past, it’s not too late to try again. Failure is NOT final. God has a vision for your home and he wants you to tap into that vision. Ask God what that vision is and pray for that. Secular culture demeans men in a lot of ways, especially the role of a man in the home. Let’s recapture God’s design for us as men!

Four Practical tips for being the spiritual leader in your home:

  1. Self Evaluate – Be honest with yourself and where you are at in this area
  2. Ask Your Wife – Get your wife’s viewpoint on where you are at
  3. Find a Mentor – You can’t do this on your own, find a mentor to guide and encourage you
  4. Start Small – Pray at the dinner table, read bible stories to your kids, pray with your wife

Regardless of where you are in your journey, we have the tools and experiences for you. We provide one-to-one coaching, small group, and retreat curriculum. To know God is an adventure, and we are calling all men to conquer the mountain ahead of us. Men, it’s time to climb! >>> MENOFIRON.ORG/THECLIMB

He who loves his wife loves himself.” Ephesians 5:25-28
