Solomon made several statements that give great insight and freedom to what it looks like to enjoy sex with one’s wife. “Drink water from your own cistern,” he says. “Let your fountain be blessed,” “take pleasure in the wife of your youth,” “let her breasts always satisfy you,” and “be lost in her love forever.” As a married man, this is one of my favorite passages in the Bible.


Vision is the ability and clarity to see God’s preferred future through Jesus Christ and the Word of God


[Suggestions to develop a plan for spiritual growth in marriage]

  1. Get a visionary picture of what the Lord wants a biblical woman to look like.
  2. Pray for her growth.
  3. Expect that the Lord is going to grow her.
  4. Pray for the strength to lead her in a loving and caring way.

For a long time, I didn’t want to be the pastor of a church. I avoided the position mainly because I feared that level of responsibility.

Godly sex is so paradoxical because two seemingly contradictory things are meant to happen at the same time: we enjoy it, but also must be selfless toward our spouse in having it.

Here before us is a man who was man enough to drink in death and spit out victory.

Christian men should not have to drag each other to gatherings; they should be set ablaze by the God of heaven so much that they are the first ones in the door, leading their families behind them


Being born again reverses the polarity of creation


A disciple is a learner, but not in the academic setting of schoolroom, rather the work site of a craftsman


Do we really think singing things like “hold me,” “rock me in your arms,” “you are beautiful,” and “you are so sweet” appeals to men? Our insistence on these kinds of songs points to the ongoing over-feminizing of the church


God’s design has always been that men would be fathered. That earthly fathers would be a representation of a heavenly One.
