with most men's discipleship efforts:

Men, Stop Pretending!
how to preach the gospel to yourself and its practical benefits and implications. Here's one particular discipline every man must deal with..."Stop Pretending"
Like everyone else, you are pretty good at pretending. It is not malicious, but you can put on a good face when in reality things are not that good. You want to appear strong even when you are weak, or you at least do not want to appear weak. This superficial persona is the front of pride that only encourages the sin to continue in yourself, and it ultimately robs you of gospel influence-the kind of influence Paul had with the church in Rome, and they had with him.

"Muscular Christianity" - Is It Biblical?
When Pastor John Piper recently stated that the Bible has a distinctly "masculine feel",. he touched off quite a firestorm of protest in the blogosphere from
feminists and their supporters in and outside the church. Theologian Michael Horton weighed in with his own take on "Muscular Christianity". Check out his recent article HERE Let us know if you think he is missing the mark or he's really on to something - firstname.lastname@example.org
The Eagles, Desperados and God
"Desperado" was a big hit for the Eagles back in 1973 and since then it has been covered many times by such artists as Linda Ronstadt and Johnny Cash. One of the song's classic lines speaks to angst of our times: "It's hard to tell the night time from the day; And you're losing all your highs and lows; aint it funny how the feeling goes away... Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?" READ MORE

AN AMAZING LEAP OF FAITH
On Sunday, October 14th, Felix Baumgartner, an Australian daredevil, made the highest, fastest jump in history. After seven years of preparation, he completed his daring fall of more than 24 miles, free-falling for over five and half minutes and reaching a speed of 833.9 miles per hour. After his successful fall, Baumgartner said,
"It was harder than I expected. Trust me, when you stand up there on top of the world, you become so humble. It's not about breaking records any more. It's not about getting scientific data. It's all about coming home." Click HERE FOR VIDEO
WHAT IS A REAL MAN?
The Apostle Paul tells us how he knew he had crossed over into manhood. In 1 Corinthians 13: 11 he writes, "When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child, BUT WHEN I BECAME A MAN, I did away with childish things."
What a man surrenders to will determine his outcome as a man. Real manhood steps away from childish things. Real manhood means we courageously step up to whatever challenge, temptation or battle we face and do our duty, knowing and delighting in who we are in Christ.

David Platt is the Lead Pastor at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham AL and author of bestselling books Radical, Radical Together and his just released Follow Me: A Call to Die, A Call to Live.
In this powerful video message from Urbana 2012 Missions Conference, David demonstrates the worth of Jesus that propels us into the world making His worth known to the ends of the earth. He paints a picture of Jesus as a man who's not asking for part of our lives, but our whole lives.
As men, we don't respond to his radical call because it's easy, but because he is worthy of our trust, our plans and dreams, and our affections. "Far too many of us have reduced Him to a poor, puny savior who's just begging for us to accept Him into our hearts" and we have deluded what it means to be His disciple in the world.
