Men, your manhood is being hijacked not just by your corrupted culture, but by "godless grace" that has crept into the church. Listen to this warning from Jude 3-4:
"Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord."
We're not the first generation that has been deceived to tweak grace just enough to now have a license to indulge our flesh. Because, hey our God is always standing ready to lavish us with grace right? It really becomes a very convenient lifestyle. Indulge my flesh all week, ask for forgiveness on Sunday, and then head back to that place where they dish out the grace. When really, we never found God's grace in the first place. Instead we were enticed by a "god-less grace" that Satan has been using for generations quite effectively.
Men, when you find God's grace, here's one way to know that you found the real thing: "God's grace wrecks your wicked heart, leaving you with a godly sorrow that leads to repentance." (2 Cor. 7:8-11) Only then can you embrace God's Grace.
You won't find true courage as a man until you find true sorrow over your sin. Sorrow that only comes as we let the Holy Spirit do his work of convicting our callous heart.
Yes, you are going to fall many times on your journey up, and your God has provided a strong Rope of Grace to save you. His work saves, not yours! But ask the Lord to reveal whether your fall was induced by "god-less grace". If by chance you find that you've been duped, then stop and thank your God, because you just found God's true grace. Courage men!
