A Word to Men

By Greg Laurie

Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, ‘Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!’ 

Nehemiah 4:14

The moment Nehemiah and the Jewish people started rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, attacks came in various forms. Note how Nehemiah responded: “Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, ‘Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!’” (Nehemiah 4:14 NLT).

What’s very significant is the fact that Nehemiah’s words were addressed to the men: “Fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!” The men were told to fight for their families.

Each one, for the most part, was to build the part of the wall that was nearest to his home. If you were building the wall and your house was next to it, do you think you would do a good job of securing the wall? Of course. That is your house, and in that house is your family.

Men, if someone were to break into your house, would you defend your wife and children? Of course you would. You would stop the intruder. You would do what needs to be done.

But what about a spiritual attack against your wife? What about a spiritual attack against your children or your grandchildren? Would you be there as well?

We need more men of God leading their families and setting an example. Men, stop being slackers. Get up and lead. You lead in other areas, so lead in this one. Lead your family in Bible study. Lead your family to church. Lead your family in prayer. Be that man of God. Make your stand in your own home first. You will be so blessed if you do this.
