Jay and Chicka discuss the pace of living in this world daily. The Biblical lens versus the cultural lens. Man vs. the world. What are we up against, and how do we stand tall when everything is swirling?

What is my assignment today, Lord?

Jay and Chicka discuss the tension of being a man vs a biblical man when POLITICS are the center of discussion. What are we up against and how do we stand tall when everything is swirling.

When we hear the word patience, we probably think of the virtue that enables us to wait. That’s one way of looking at it, but Spirit-led patience is also much more. Patience is longsuffering. It involves more than passive waiting; it is active forbearance. It is a deliberate willingness to put up with disagreeable things in pursuit of higher goals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fruit of “love” may be the best example. We cannot produce the type of love God desires without the leading and strength of the Holy Spirit. The English word love has a very broad meaning, but the Greek language was very precise. The love which the Holy Spirit manifests in believers is agape. This love is not a feeling, but a choice. It is the choice to be kind, to sacrifice, and to consider another’s needs greater than one’s own (Philippians 2:3).

 

 

 

  

 

The fruit of the Spirit includes a peace that goes beyond that of salvation. It is a sweet relationship. We are called to His presence and called to be confident in that presence because we are His friends (John 15:15).

God’s peace transcends earthly matters. Believers are to be “anxious for nothing,” for God promises to “guard your hearts and minds.” It is a peace “which transcends all understanding”; that is, to the worldly mind, such peace is incomprehensible. Its source is the Holy Spirit of God, whom the world neither sees nor knows. Come Prince of Peace!

 

 

 

 

 

Gentleness is not so much about our natural personality traits as it is about our attitudes and how we approach others. The fruit of the Spirit is essentially the character of Jesus. The quality of gentleness is the opposite of harshness with others. It is power over one’s Spirit that exudes a response like Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we exhibit the kindness of Jesus, we are tender, merciful, benevolent, and useful to others. Every action, every word will have His flavor of grace in it. To maintain this attitude toward those we love is hard enough. To express kindness toward those who are against us requires the work of God

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this reason, faithfulness, a fruit of the Spirit, can be a challenging trait to possess. Faithfulness comes from a place of trust and loyalty. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is a confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” As a Christian, it is important to be faithful to God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ‘goodness’ described as a fruit of the Spirit is not merely moral behavior, but the excellence of character. This goodness is only possible through God’s grace and mercy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the western world, men and women have access to all manner of distraction that seeks to draw us away from the Kingdom of God.  How can we avoid this distraction and pursue a Christ-centered life? The answer…self-control.  Join Chicka and Jay as they take a hard look at the Biblical principle of self-control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this episode, we unpack the 2nd Fruit of the Spirit – Joy – and how we can get there on our daily walk with Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is the hallmark of the Christian walk? How do we access the life Jesus describes in the Sermon on the Mount? Turns out it has a lot to do with fruit.  Come along with Chicka and Jay as they walk through Galatians 5, examining the deeds of the flesh vs. the fruit of the Spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What would it look like if we were present in our marriage, truly “seeing” our wives? Join Chicka and Jay as they unpack one of the deepest desires of our wife’s heart, to be truly seen by us (her husband).

 

 

 

Everyone wants to be “happy,” especially in our marriages.  But what if your marriage wasn’t designed for your happiness, but rather your holiness? Come along as Jay and Chicka explore the concept of holiness in our marriages, discuss what it looks like to “burn the boats,” and challenge us all to become committed prayer warriors for our wives, doing our part to help her be ready for the day when she will meet the Lord face to face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ephesians 5:25 commands men to love their wives as Christ loved the church.  How did Jesus love the church? He died for her.  Join the guys as they discuss what it looks like to “die daily for our wives,” and how we must learn to die daily to ourselves and Jesus before we can ever hope to die for her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a man, you were uniquely designed for the role of husband.  Yet many men sense there is something missing from their marriage.  Listen in as Chicka and Jay set the foundation for the prodigal husband series, and challenge us to return home to be the husbands our wives desperately want and need us to be.  In part one, the guys explore the mystery of becoming “one flesh” with our wives as ordained by God in Genesis 2:24.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Humans were not designed to carry the amount of information foisted upon us in the 21st century, particularly all of the horror and evil perpetrated daily around the world. Multiple times a day we are exposed to tragedy, betrayal, and unexpected (bad) news that makes us angry, sparking a physiological response in our bodies that must be dealt with.

Come along with Chicka and Jay as they explore what to do with this anger, and how to avoid “stuffing it down inside,” leading to unwanted sin and anger in our lives and relationships.

 

 

 

 

 

The Bible has much to say about anger.  The Old Testament and New Testament writers share many examples of how (and how not) to approach anger as followers of Jesus.  Join Chicka and Jay as they dig through the book of Proverbs, and search the Wisdom literature of the Bible for insight on how Biblical men are to deal with anger.

 

 

 

 

 

Anger separates us from God and those we love.  Anger also interrupts our spiritual growth as Biblical men.  Listen in as Chicka and Jay outline the difference between righteous and unrighteous anger, and unpack Jesus’ model of how to approach and handle anger, and what we should even bother being angry about.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is great news for the uninitiated Christian man: God wants to father you into the man He created you to be. Join Chicka and Jay as they explore a process of inviting God to father us, and submitting to His tutelage through the intervention of Jesus in our lives, and the transformative power of the Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Modern science is revealing the deep connection between our brain structure and chemistry, our emotions, and our behaviors.  Chicka and Jay take a look at the connection between brain science, attachment theory, rites of passage, and how our lack of initiation sets us on a path of destructive behaviors.

 

 

 

 

 

Join Chicka and Jay as they set the foundation for the Rites of Passage and the impact on a man.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our world is often confused about the difference between a male, a man, and a Biblical man.  Join Chicka and Jay as they explore how the world defines male, how the Bible defines male, and how this became broken from the very beginning of the story, all the way back in the Garden of Eden.
