Too often men are absent from our churches.
Of those who do faithfully attend, a significant percentage do not invest the same time and energy into their walk with the Lord as they do other less worthy pursuits.
The fact that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever should give us all strength and confidence to be bold in the name of Christ. These hymn lyrics are a great reminder of how all believers, not just men, ought to be “done with lesser things” in order to more fully pursue the service of Jesus, our King of kings.
Rise up, O men of God by William P. Merrill
Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
to serve the King of kings.
