Our Note to Guys: Steps

By Sarah and Selma Komisky

QUESTION: How would you like to encourage guys to take a step in their faith?

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”

– Micah 6:8 (ESV)

This is our prayer for you.


“Find a mentor who is rooted in God’s Word and living it out!”

“Spend daily time in the Bible. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”

“It’s one thing to have your relationship with God/faith, in your head. Like book smart…facts. Like knowing a lot about celebs, but you don’t really know them personally. Your faith is a heart matter. So, take the time to step into where you’re at with that. Do you call yourself a believer just because you go to a church now and then? Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Be real with yourself.”

“Find a mentor to confide in and be accountable with.”

“In relationship terms, I like seeing guys taking steps forward by keeping God first in relationships, and always being open to talk about their faith. Also, being willing to cut off a relationship if they think it would be more beneficial for their faith.”

“To be part of an accountability group with other guys where they can share honestly with one another about their temptations, struggles, fears, hopes, and dreams.”

“Some guys I feel like they try to fit in with the crowd more so than stand up and out for Jesus with their faith. I think it would be incredible to see them realize and know that they can be unashamed of their faith and step after step, God will align everything they need on their journey of life with a godly community, relationship, etc.”

“I think the things that is so valuable is taking the time to really get to know the Bible. The importance of not just reading The Word, but really studying it, being in relationship with it, is something I’ve been learning lately.”

“I think it’s admirable when guys make the time and effort to attend Bible studies or events for just Christian men. It says a lot when a guy wants to grow in his faith with other mature men who can speak into his life.”

“To not be afraid to speak their minds. Guys sometimes think it’s ‘uncool’ to go against the status quo, especially on things like purity. Having a different opinion doesn’t make anyone less ‘manly.’”

“I definitely think that maybe seeing that they are bolder in taking a stand and being confident to share their love for Christ!”
