The Bar Isn’t Lowered … It’s Raised

Jesus didn’t come to lower the bar for manhood. He didn’t come to make gaining a higher level of authentic masculinity easier.

Jesus raised the bar on manhood. By raising the bar, He made us realize we need a savior. And He invites us to embrace our true identity.

To be a real man is to be more like Jesus. It means:

  • Loving sacrificially and putting the needs of others before our own

  • Leading with humility, integrity, and servant-heartedness

  • Pursuing righteousness and standing firm in our faith, even in the face of adversity

  • Seeking wisdom and guidance from God's Word and wise counsel

  • Embracing our identity as beloved sons of God, free from the fear of rejection or failure

Remember, you are not alone in this pursuit.

The CMN brotherhood is here to support you, pray for you, and walk alongside you as we grow in Christlikeness together. We are here to spur one another on toward love and good deeds, knowing that in Christ, we have everything we need to become the men God has called us to be.
