Man of Steel
Guest Preacher: Lito Solorio
Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.
1 Corinthians 15:45
So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
1: A Man of Steel Rejects Passivity
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!
2 A Man of Steel Accepts Responsibility
“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
A Man’s 3 Responsibility
- - A will to obey (God’s will as revealed in the Scriptures)
- - A work to do (not just in the work of his job, but also the
work in his home, church, and community)
- - A woman to love (his wife)
3. A Man of Steel Leads Courageously
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man,[a] and the head of Christ is God.
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.
4. A Man of Steel Expects the Greater Reward
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
A Man of Steel….
Expects the Greater Reward
