This is the Truth Network welcome to mannitol and brought you by DAW. CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry were there devoted to breaking down the walls of race and accommodation challenging them to take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior, a black guy and a white guy welcome back to man talk radio listening audience and will Hardy the black guy and I'm Roy Jones Junior, the white guy and don't be offended out there. When we say black guy on the wheel. We are brothers in Christ. I know I know somebody might be out there all you know we are we don't approve it is appreciated that. But it's all that we are brothers from different mother said let's be very clear love will, as if he was my blood brother trying and likewise appreciate that Wilson hey don't be finished about making light of the whole thing society takes to Sears absolutely nuts: skin this will return make clear that matter.

That matter, so we can cut up about so we were talking about last week Roy we gave two components of the five components that men need tools that men need in order to enhance their walk-in to make their walks silently use that word, and so we want to pick up where we left off and the third element or tool is fellowship with believers all well fellowship in the men most massive civil so most men struggle with the philosophies they don't want to get transparent. I don't want to open up and we sing that time and time again, I would not let the summits that swim in really seems like the wall come down in the slip fellowship is so so important for encouragement for engagement for empowerment and not for enlightenment. You know the word because there may be something you struggle with the gospel is that person to speak to you about say look, will this is were to talk to you.

This is one struggling need your help.

Need your prayer and God can use you to impart back on the something that he needs to say that I'm not able to get armed and you know when when we look at the word community inside of the work community is a little word call unity so there's unity and community.

A man and you know, praise God the Holy Spirit just gave it but what you know we need unity. And when you talk about unity in community. Now we're talking about fellow shipping because community is about fellowship right right you know and not being alone and and when a person is alone, then the enemy. Have you separated and then he could start you know calling these ideals about how thing how good things were when before you were Christian and and and try to deceive you into going back and to you know get into that lifestyle ice again. Which goes back to distraction because if you're not somebody it's easily get pulled off course and we've talked about this in the past will use this illustration sometimes will stand back to back. The boys always got your back absolutely. Is your brother in Christ and another warrior that standing there with you to be part of your community is a larger group same holds true. All four sides are covered absolutely, you know, in Ephesians chapter 5 in verse 11 it says you know have no fellowship with on the unfruitful works of darkness but rather expose them so CC man, when you are doing something that is against the word of God, God will convict you if you ignore the conviction, then what happens is you become hardened and calloused to it and you think this is okay for me to do because nothing's happened to me see the Old Testament judgment Roy was God. When God judge someone it was immediate, swift and immediately up and said because we don't see that today we go. Well, maybe God gave me a pass on this. I don't think so.

Or they're using the blood of Christ is the pass or say welcome covered by the blood so therefore all my sins whether I continue to repeat the same sin or not, is covered by the blood will tell them about that piece will you know the word of God tells us in Romans chapter 1.

How shall we continue in sin.

If we are no longer therein.

In other words, we are not slaves to it right. So why continue doing something that we have been free from so when we when we sin, we sin because we want to not because you have to see because before you came to Christ. That's all you knew right that was your lifestyle.

That was the only thing you so, but now God has freed you from the power of sin.

You don't have to.

You no longer slaves to will the goes back to another spot, but you just talk about fellowship. So if you tempted the new got the fellowship to support you, keep you out of temptation. That's right, but of the peace. Open Romans 12, who talked about before is quite often renewing of the mind itself to that which has to be done daily and maybe even and then most of our cases got continue to remind yourself your purpose in which you accept across your purpose is no longer about you it's about him since about living for him everything that we do, including our work, including her family time. All those things are for him and his out it's out of the love for him. Yes, you know, so we we don't do. We don't do what we do. Even though we know we're going to get reward we do with out of our love for ice and see. I think that makes all the difference. Because if we say well you normally get a really big crown when I get to heaven, Armageddon. Many crowns so I need just go out and start doing things and you're doing it for the wrong reason or motive, then you know God's go look at that motive and you can say well you know you did out of your own and not out of the love that you have for me for that brother or sister in Christ, and I would still goes back to the parting of the goats and sheep right so should be pure in your motor soon enough it goes back to the first couple components we talked about praying and reading if you're praying and reading is going to bleed you in the right direction. These will also put you in the right fellowship with the right people so I don't he unequally yoked. That should go along with your fellowship as well as your spouse. If you're already married you read commitment and got a lifelong commitment so that you can pray for your spouse if they've not become saved and have not made that decision.

If you're not married, then make sure that your brain had a time solution unequally yoked against the fellowship, not just from the support and commodity fellowship as spouse yes the right fellowship with the spouse and sin. Just because a guy he's not married in Allegheny goes well I got the freedom to do XYZ old boy because I am not bound by a spouse is covered by the blood gas see these timeout meltdown out, salute the flag associate bees that thinking again. It opens up the Avenue for the enemy to come now, you will let you this limit is sought to be very passionate about this piece the mainstream person had this conversation recently with young man's Howdy smart God the face every day swimming. So how do you smite God the face requested you knowingly choose to sin every day by your choice in this matter and I will go on the details, but this choice in this matter knowingly's choosing to sin against God. How do you sell the one hand, that you love the Lord love God, but you're not trying to break that cycle sin is consciously chosen to move into this route piece of sin bit sinful behavior on a daily basis you know, and for that guy who sits out there and and basically just says I'm not going to do the things that we just talked about. I'm not going to pray. Well, that's a SMAC of God in the face. There is no I'm not going to study the Bible as a smack of the God in the face. I'm not going to get around any believers, because all they gonna do is talk about me so see we we think of all these excuses not to do what God wants to do instead of trusting God and going out and letting the word of God flow through us and build in us relationships and build community because about that community right why not, why not just reverse that because the right thing to do out of love that is the right thing to do, gotten about that part of her in our walk with Christ is the right thing to do and I think sometimes we need to remind ourselves that we don't always feel like doing dogs for like reading that's right you don't always start praying with your site banging on you and you notice when you really should private shoot. Sometimes the flock you just need to sit down because and we do it we don't feel like being around people so like I want to fill in those all natural right in God understands right right but this goes back to you.

Take that step in the natural, even though you know you're not up for don't feel like it and guess what that may be the very moment that the greatest blessings Lately and He's Going to Energize You Speak to the Different Little Because What Because It Was the Right Thing to Absolute As You Had the Discipline Because You Have the Commitment Step down Center Father.

Remember, affordable chiropractic on the W. Lexington Ave. in High Point Hall 336-885-1987. Welcome back to man's talk radio and Roy, you know, when we finish the last segment.

We're talking about fellowship with the believers and so we want to move to the component or tool number for that man needs to have and that's listening and what is required. Listen will you need to ears one, which means we should probably listing more for people to look for varsity listening more subject to ears and one mouth, absolutely more than one were talking and you know man of listening it. It has to go a lot deeper than listening to perhaps maybe what your spouse is saying you want to listen to what she says but as a leader in the home you want to listen to the voice of God so that you will be put in a position to give your family direction on where they need to go spiritually because again you are the pastor you are the priests you are the provider, Dr. of that home is so so listening to God and if your family see that you are listener and a good listener to God.

Then they in turn will follow the head, but how do we demonstrate good listener in the practical sense we need to mirror back when were hearing something right, absolutely. So like if you say would you explain something to proffer the active listener will say will.

This is what I heard you say and then if there's a misunderstanding or breaking the columns you to know what he heard most of there's one more piece that they didn't pick up the new mirror back to this is what I need you here in this piece thinking with the father.

That's right. So when you praying to him and you're seeking him you're asking asking for his leadership and guidance on your life then you need to say okay listen we sit down and listen and pray back what he spoken to you, whether it be through the words of father. This is what I'm taking away from this. If I'm missing something or from misinterpreting what you asked me to do here. Please speak to my heart through the Holy Spirit absolutely right, you know, and I'm just gonna bring this up because one. One thing that's like a real pet peeve to me. You got to pee. When I got Kathleen I believe that I never know where you about the here and now.

Business is good and see what it what it is is people who try to finish your sentences. That's what my pet peeve is if you're speaking and then sometimes I dinner at US and just like us like that safely listen to audio PK my lucky people who try to finish your sentences without listening to the whole sentence was given an answer back to whatever probably reduce the mailing physicians right in my right eye. Maybe 02 I got. There's a little better but other than start time again interrupt you or the mirror back before you've even finished exactly to answer this what the problem is will not reward you to sit and chances are they've misinterpreted what you say so they're giving you a wrong answer email to something that was misinterpreted to begin well if you think about being an active listener to be an active listener when you formulate a solution or response before the persons completed their statement of there's burgers. Both are trying to share with you is access. The practical side of so if you think of it focusing, listening, this think about the number times in someone's interrupted your summaries give you the answer but before your finish what you were saying what your heart was which your timeshare.

So then we as the listeners we can change that you active listener start practicing what it means to be an active listener and I can be a put in play with, with Christ as well. Exactly what, let's take that to a practical sense, just say for example in this is just an example.

You have to go to traffic court. And so now you're in traffic court because you're contesting the ticket or something someone or something that maybe they put out on you.

The system put out on you and all of a sudden the judge say okay case number 62185 and so you get up and you approach the podium to give a defense and almost let me text a gallon. He goes guilty without listening to whatever it is you have to say get guilty and and and so you looking like what you haven't heard anything. They never gets that your case so again so it's the same thing when you have that individual who wants to give you an answer without hearing the whole matter right now and the word of God tells us in Ecclesiastes chapter 12 in verse 13 it says let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter, fear God and keep his commandments, because this is the whole duty of man. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty. So when you do that you are fulfilling all of what God has said if you obedient to him, and this is why we giving you men. These tools praying understanding that you need to do this on a daily basis talk with the father, Bible study, read the word and read the word of God. Don't take the word of God for granted.

I believe it's a second Peter chapter 2 in verse three where it says as newborn babes desiring the sincere milk of the word that you may grow thereby see when you are young in Christ man and if you're listening and you young in Christ, you need to desire that sincere milk because see you are not able to eat the stakes yet. So you have to suckle on that milk right now and and and get nourishment in you.

And then as you begin to grow and your you start getting teeth and things like that.

Now you start eating solid food.

This is the approach we should take when it comes to the word of God right and do not be mere readers of the word, but be doers of the worst is important to stress this folks, you've got to be people of action has got to be men of action we can do it for you know not at all.

And God needs you and not that was that was modeled by Christ and the 12 disciples to become 11. That's what was modeled exactly so they won't sit on the sidelines. They were out doing it. They spread the word.

It all started with those 12 and trust me man if if we could do it for you and come in there and show you how it's done.

We would get his butt is too many of you out there for Roy and I to cover such ground so we have to trust God that is used on your heart. Yes, that you trust the word enough to say I'm going to go out and do this. Okay Roy that last component, and in this one. I know we're all guilty of being a doer of the word yes, which we talked about a couple times. These first four sections. Why is it important be doer of the word well your first thing comes to mind is that you and when we say sorry or can't on the way into heaven knows that's not the point. The point is by being a doer of the word you're living it out so others can see it you friend of mine passed last year and will you knowing there would always say, your actions are speaking so loud I can't hear a word you're saying it's a few folks relisten that the birth of her second, your actions are speaking so well that I can't hear words or say this reflect for a moment so you is that the way people see me that my action speaks so loud that not hearing the word that I'm saying now that could be a really good thing so that they're seeing the pool love of Christ in the kingdom and everything you do or could really be a bad thing right there seeing something totally different than what you're saying and if you're listening today, ask yourself the question is this who they see is a good thing in the way that I act in the way that live it out as a bad thing. The way the libido and man. Think about this to Ed as Roy just said that. Think about this. If the biblical police came to your house kicked in your door. Would there be enough evidence to convict you as a kingdom citizen. A man great? Or would you just blend in the crowd with everybody else be released attracted you're free to go.

You pass the tests so you know all of this I think should weigh heavy on message.

Should you know because we do. Time is winding down and there's, there will come a time to what we have to stand yes before the righteous. Just Jesus Christ men go out and read James chapter 1 beginning at verse 21 and go through verse 23 and Roy, you got that right there under give me this was cellular okay record 21 through 23 year 21 to 23. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save do not merely listen to the word so deceive yourselves.

Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in the mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks Wednesday. The first was CC man.

So what kind of man do you see when you wake up in the morning.

You know what it will there be or could there be enough evidence to convict you as a kingdom citizen. If the biblical police came in kicked in your door about a man because see these again this is something that we as God's people must we must present the face of Jesus Christ to the world because we are his hands and feet. A man in the longest being doers of the word will something from should stress to that. Do not let the left hand know what the right hand is doing and what that means is folks just don't broadcast your worksheet don't go out here and start telling everybody all that you're doing for the kingdom.

That's right, let it be seen and not told us right someone else chooses to share. That's God's blessing that are trying to just recognize fact that you're serving the king it does need to be self-promoting because then you surely have received your blessing in that moment when you take and boast about advocacy you become.

Then like the scribes and Pharisees, praying out open and open prayers, long prayers and Jesus said all they want to do is be seen for their much praying yes and also it it was about them.

It was about how they were presenting themselves to people so that people will glorify them and it's not about the glorification. It's not will and the two as we depart were getting ready in the shoulder for they think again for joining us. We just won't leave you with this look around the church and are you are you a doer of the word. Are you men doers of the work if they're not there were challenge you to become the guys are going to initiate the change our society need you God we need you to be a part of this change we can do it for you man you have to do it for yourself. So we thank God for all of you listening and we hope you join us once again on man talk radio from Roy Jones.
