They Have Their Eyes on You!

Have you ever noticed someone watching you? You know it because you can almost feel it in your bones. The moment you look around and determine who it is that is watching, the next question generally is why were they watching you?

In my book entitled, "Life Lessons For My Sons", Life Lesson #3 states, "Glean from the man that the Lord places in your life. That man was ordained to demonstrate godliness for your benefit.-Dad".

Have you ever considered the fact that there are people, brothers and young brothers who are watching you as their example of manhood? They are looking to you to display the qualities of what it means to be a Man of God. Understand, they are not looking for a perfect man because they already know that "The Perfect Man" does not exist beyond Jesus Christ. However, they are looking for a victorious man who has experienced triumph during difficult times and grace in the times of personal defeat.

The young men of this generation are looking for "Real Men" who will share real experiences for their benefit. Allow me to share with you several things that the young man who is watching you should be able to glean from you.

1. He should glean the importance of good hygiene and personal appearance. In other words, your attire and hygiene upkeep speaks volumes about the type of person you are. Demonstrate to the young men in your life the importance of looking your best and being your best at all times. You may have to buy them the necessary items to help them meet good standards of appearance and hygiene.

2.He should glean that a "Real Man" accepts responsibilities for his actions. Allow the young men in your life to see a man who will own up to his faults and failures. Demonstrate the importance of keeping promises and honoring commitments. Show that young man the fruit of being responsible with your successes and accomplishments in life.

3.He should glean the importance of a man being connected with Christ. Show that young man who may have reservations about expressing his faith in Jesus Christ that it is ok and appropriate for a man to acknowledge his relationship with Christ in public, through his lifestyle and interactions with others. Listen! Share with him your own initial reservations, so that he will know that what he is feeling is not something foreign to the male experience.

If you simply start with the three items above, you will make a powerful impact in the lives of so many young men who do not have a godly role model in their lives. Whatever experiences you have, they can serve as stepping stones for some young man. You do not have to famous to make a difference. You just have to care enough to do something about the situation within your own abilities.

A Dream Come True- Release of My Books: "Life Lessons For My Sons" & "When God Speaks" on Monday, March 24, 2014

God bless you all! I am truly excited about all of the great things God is doing in my life. I am especially grateful to the Lord for the upcoming release of two of my books; "Life Lessons For My Sons" and "When God Speaks". This is really a dream come true. The Lord impressed in my spirit several years ago to write both of the aforementioned books.

"When God Speaks" is a great devotional tool for anyone who is interested in growing in their personal discipleship. In fact, with each devotional there is a place for your own personal reflection after reading the devotional. Really take the time to determine what God was trying to convey to you after reading the devotion. In addition, I have also provided some follow-up questions that will help further bring more meaning to the devotion.

This devotional is great for small groups as well. You could literally invite friends over and share with one another concerning what the Lord spoke to you after reading the devotion.

Also, I am so proud of my book, "Life Lessons For My Sons". This book can serve as an aide for any mentor, father, mother, etc... who wants to ensure that the young man in their life learn the many life lessons that every man encounters. I talk about growing up in Montgomery, Alabama  as a young boy all the way through my growth and development as a father and husband.

I am convinced that every young man, adult and even young women will learn a great deal from the lessons of my life.

Take the opportunity to get your copy of each book for your personal library. Continue to check back on this blog for additional articles and information that will enhance your ability to mentor the young men in your life.

If you have facebook, you can connect with me at Life Lessons For My Sons and When God Speaks. Thank you in advance for your support and most of all your prayers.

In Christ,

Kevin Jackson

Spiritual Fathers

1 Corinthians 4:15" Even though you have ten thousands guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, For in Christ Jesus, I became your father through the gospel."

An observation: There are more and more young men and adult men who are yearning for a father figure in their lives. It is time for spiritual fathers to step-up to the plate.

The devastation of not having a father in a young man's life goes beyond his behavioral challenges and all of the other surface symptoms. Fatherlessness is a pandemic and must be addressed by men who are willing to commit to training young men to become men of God. In the reference scripture listed above, Paul addresses the need of spiritual fathers among the saints.

God has the ability to link young men and adult men together in a way that the young man feels like he has finally gotten a male presence in his life to show him how to be a man. I have seen and heard stories, including my own, of young men even in their 20's who are hurting because of the rejection and abandonment caused by their natural fathers. However, as I have experienced as a natural father and a spiritual father to many young men and adult men, God can anoint you to fulfill the void that only a father can fill.

What does the young man need from you as a spiritual father?

 1. He needs a man who is spiritually fit. One who is saved and understands the principles of the Kingdom of God. One who understands the importance of walking in the spirit and not in the flesh. This young man needs a spiritual father who can enter into spiritual warfare on behalf of his spiritual son. One who possesses discernment and the ability to hear God clearly.

 2. He needs a man who can handle commitment. Young men have had enough of disappointments, so it would not be good for a spiritual father to come in the name of Jesus and still leave the young man with empty promises. In other words, a spiritual father must be able to keep his word, walk in integrity and be able to carry the burdens of his spiritual son.

3. He needs a man with a vision. One who can look into his eyes and see potential. A spiritual father must be able to see what God sees and speak a word of deliverance into the life of the young man God assigns to him.

4. He needs a man who will hold him accountable. The relationship cannot be built solely on positive reinforcement, but that spiritual father must be able to call the young man into accountability for those things that he does not do according to the will of God. Young men need a strong man who will not buckle-down when it is time to put the young man's feet to the fire.

5. He needs a man who is already whole. Young men who are dealing with issues do not need a spiritual father who begins to depend on the young man for support and encouragement. A spiritual father must be independent of the young man and his resources and totally dependent on God for every provision. 

May God help us all come into the understanding that the need is still there for spiritual fathers ordained by God. The sons are waiting, will you take the necessary steps to ensure that you are contributing to some young man's spiritual development in the Kingdom of God?

Calling on all Spiritual Fathers! Go Forth!

When I think about the word reputation, I immediately refer to what other people think about another individual. Often times people will say emphatically that they could care less about what others feel about them even as a Christian.

The Bible encourages believers to not let our good be damaged by a bad reputation. In essence, we are to display the character of Christ in everything that we do.

My brother, how is your reputation? Can anyone truthfully find a dark stain on your character because of something that you have said or done?

Allow me to shift away from what people directly see as your reputation. Have you ever considered what your financial reputation is concerning your credit score? Wow! That score reveals a great deal about a person's character. Your financial reputation has the potential to limit your buying power and literally cause you to have to pay higher interests rates. Don't worry, it is not the end of the world. You can still come of this on top.

Just like you would try to reconcile with a person who you have offended and in the process damaged your reputation, you will need to reconcile your financial transactions the same way. In doing so you increase your credit score and thereby improve your financial reputation. How?

1. Begin paying every bill on time.

2. Pay down your credit cards to about 10% - 30% of the credit limit.

3. Review your credit report for errors and dispute them with one of the leading credit report companies.

4. Communicate with your creditors if you have a serious financial hardship. They may be willing to work with you.

If you can start to doing these four things, you can improve your financial reputation in no time. Always remember, we represent Christ in every area of our lives.

Men Who Hurt in Silence 06/20 by Elder Kevin Jackson | Blog Talk Radio

Men Who Hurt in Silence 06/20 by Elder Kevin Jackson | Blog Talk Radio

Men Who Hurt in Silence

Often times no one can tell when a man is in pain or has a struggle that he cannot handle because men have learned how to mask pain and struggle since childhood. We were taught that crying was essentially a sign of total weakness. As a result, we develop throughout our lives ignoring the obvious pain that we have from various incidents in our lives for the sake of maintaining the superman persona for the world.

I want to caution all of my brothers to not remain in silence alone. Not to continue to scream a silent scream in your head or simply resolve the total matter by displaying deep seeded anger. When pain is masked, it leads to self-destruction. My brother, please don't allow the enemy and those who hurt you in the past, destroy the plan God ordained for your life. No! More! Silence!

How can you, a man, safely navigate leaving your cave of silence without losing your perception of being strong? First acknowledge that there are issues that have never been resolved and there is hope beyond the current methods you have used to mask the pain.

Second, release the guilt and pain from the experiences to Christ. How? Cast your every thought, care, anger, guilt, rejection, hurt, abandonment upon the Lord because He is so...concerned about you man. Jesus is not concerned about the perception of society and how they define weakness and strength. His perspective is in your weakness His strength is made perfect.

Third, find a strong Christian brother who you can be transparent with. Unmask and tell him the issues that cause you to hurt in silence. Ask him to commit to praying for and with you on a consistent basis. The moment you open your mouth and begin to speak about the pain of the divorce, the death of a loved one, the issues of your childhood, you will experience such a release in your spirit that you have never experienced before.

Fourth, mediate on the word of God. Allow His word to minister to every wound that is oozing with pain. Mediate on Isaiah 26:3, "I will keep him in perfect peace who keeps his mind stayed on me." Also reflect on Psalm 91. The bible is replete with scriptures that will bring continual healing to your spirit.

Listen my brother! You do not have to remain in silence any longer. God is concerned about you and the pain that you have in your spirit. You are not alone, there are millions of men who continue to mask during the day and unmask at home never to find the deliverance and resolve they so desperately seek.

No! More! Silence!
