From the Pastor

December 5th, 2021

I call it MI6, the 6 stages of male initiation. John Eldridge calls Stage 1 the Beloved son stage. Every young boy needs to know he is the apple of his daddy’s eye, that his dad loves him very much!  Stage 2 is the Cowboy stage, where a kid is just a kid who gets to run around whooping and hollering. He learns how to fish and camp out and play ball.

The 3rd Stage usually hits in the late teens, when he becomes a warrior. This is when boys learn how to handle guns and this is generally when a boy becomes a man and heads off to war. At the very least, his adventures become more dangerous like mountain biking, rock climbing with or without a rope, bronco busting and leaving home. Stage 4 is where he learns how to become a lover and fights to win the heart of the young maiden and pursues her in marriage. Learning how to properly love a woman is a lifelong pursuit and truly begins by learning to love ourselves.

Stage 5 is where he becomes a king and Stage 6 is when he finally gains enough wisdom to become a sage. Stage 5 is where we find ourselves in the Scriptures today, where Jesus says that He is our Shepherd King. These contrasts couldn’t be more striking. You are either a shepherd or a king. Very few have what it takes to have the lamb-like humility of a shepherd and the lion-heart of a king.

We men are all kings of some domain, whether we own our own company, run our little family, or simply live alone in an apartment. But could you just imagine having the run of the palace, but you take off your royal robes and humbly go live with the peasants? That Incarnation is exactly what Jesus accomplished when He left Heaven to take on human flesh. He most certainly could have been born in an extravagant palace, but no: He was born in a cave that sheltered animals. He describes Himself by saying, “I AM the Good Shepherd…” it really is still, after all these years, difficult to grasp. How can the King of kings be a Shepherd? It’s part of what makes Him so incredibly great!

Blessings,
Randy & Pam
