Men of Faith
Most of what we do in our life of faith together is lived out in the greater family and community that we are a part of. But at the same time, there are some particular connecting points just for men or those that are not exclusive, but tend to involve the men of the church more.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy
Video sessions with John Piper instruct groups in obtaining proper affections for God so that they will fight to find their delight in Christ.
There are plenty of people who insist that the command to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind doesn’t really obligate us to enjoy God above all things. “Joy and delight are emotions,” they say, “and this kind of love must simply be a decision of the will, not a feeling.”
Yet as John Piper teaches in this series and its companion When I Don’t Desire God Study Guide, emotions are commanded everywhere in Scripture. They’re not just instructions to think a certain way but to feel a certain way. So loving God above all else is not merely about our actions but about our hearts.
Though we don’t have complete control of our emotions, eternity hangs on the presence of proper affections for God. Therefore, the fight for joy is not optional. It is essential.S
