Men of God – Part 5: The Needs of a Boy

This is Episode 68 of the Jesus Society Podcast, and we’re continuing our Men of God series here, and today I want to talk about what boys need from their fathers, what happens to the heart of a boy when he doesn’t get it, and how God will step in to heal and restore the heart of the boy — or man, as it were — if we’ll just let him.

So many of us men need to experience God as a loving Father, to know that we’re valued and loved and treasured. And to rediscover — maybe for the first time in our lives — that we’re not alone.

So join me today as we discuss:

1. The four critical needs of a boy and how those things prepare the boy for manhood.

2. What happens when those needs are not met by the boy’s father.

3. How a boy’s heart becomes wounded.

4. How God will redeem the heart of a man.

5. What the Bible says about God as a father.

6. How to step into God’s embrace as a father.
