Listen to this and then, if you're still interested, read my thoughts:
I have tried to find the words to say what I feel right now after listening to Mark pound men through his sermon. I want to say so much, but I think he covers pretty much everything. As a man who is trying to stay clean myself, and to lead other men in the same quest, this is amazing work.
It is a reminder also of the work I still have to do. Is there something that I need to say to Alicia? Have I wronged her in any way? Furthermore, is there a fight coming that I need to prepare for? My current success, morally and physically, will be quickly forgotten if I fail the next test. Finally, is there a particular prayer that needs to be said?
No other words I could add would give more weight to what Mark Driscoll said, and it's good that way. I just need to make sure I'm not in the wrong anywhere.
I got this originally from a blog I just started subscribing too. It's a great read, and I recommend you head over to Jared Wilson's blog to read up on some of his other writing as well.
