3 things to keep us from slipping up and keep us stepping up

3 Things that Help Keep Us Stepping Up in Becoming Men of God

We are excited about the upcoming Stepping Up Video Study for men (due out later this year).  There are so many great stories, teaching moments and challenges to help us in our growing up and becoming more and more like the men of God we were created to become.  Periodically, we’ll share some of the clips of that study to give you a “bite of the cookie,” so to speak.

Here’s a clip of Dennis sharing a moment from his life that called his integrity into account.  Though this was a relatively minor issue in the scheme of life, it reflects the kinds of decisions we have to make every day and how, with every wrong decision, our integrity erodes little by little.  We all want to be men of integrity.  The best way is to learn from each other.  Watch to see how Dennis turned this into a teaching moment for him and his son.


The fear of God … the love of God … the rewards of God.  Those are the three key elements that Dennis shared from 2 Corinthians 5 that compel us to be men of integrity and live uncompromisingly against temptations in our conduct so we can become better men of God.

As Dennis admitted, none of us is perfect.  But when we mess up, the first place we need to go is on our knees.  Or we run the risk of laying another brick on the sands of life that will ultimately form a foundation that will not withstand the storms we will inevitably experience. So stand firm, men.  Don’t let the temptations of this life turn into the erosion of our integrity and keep us from stepping up and becoming the men of God He created us to become.

Is there a situation you need to act on right now?  A wrong that’s been eating at you that you need to right?  A small decision that you need to ask forgiveness for?  Don’t go another minute without beginning to erase the condemnation that the enemy wants to heap upon you.  Christ has already given you freedom.  You just need to embrace it and turn and walk in it daily.  That’s what men of God do when they are stepping up!
