Before you read Greg Morse's engaging blog for this week, I want to give you a challenge.
This past Sunday our pastor spoke about spiritual warfare, and he said something that needs to be said much more often in all of our churches.
"There is a spiritual warfare going on
that we are not simply called to be spectators of
but to be participants in."
My calling in CBMC is to help men recognize the call of God for each one to be a warrior in this tramendous spiritual battle that is going on all around us, but to band together in teams or platoons and to hold one another up and fight together for the hearts, souls, and lives of family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
So I make this brief introduction to this week's blog a challenge to connect with CBMC's team ministry for men in the workplace.
It is my challenge to men of God to rise up and to band together with other men in teams whose purpuse is to strengthen one another and together to bring the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to overpower the Enemy and rescue our families, our friends and our world from the downward spiral in which we are caught.
CBMC has several teams already started in the Worcester area, more in plan. If you can make it to either of those listed below, I would be pleased to welcome you there. If you have in mind a more convenient location or time please email me at
To connect with men who are already at work to make a difference, attend one of the local CBMC Connect3 teams for breakfast, basic training and encouragement.
  • CBMC Worcester team: Monday, 6:45 - 7:45 am at Chick-fil-A, 80 Gold Star Blvd, Worcester
  • CBMC Leominster team: Tuesday, 7:00 - 8:00 am at Panera Bread, Leominster Whitney Field Mall
Men Under Fire
By Greg Morse
Men need other men to do what God calls men to.
Deep, rigorous, joyful fellowship among Christian brothers is the great need of this wartime hour. The war effort doesn’t need more solitary soldiers trying to merely survive for their families. Isolated GIs and army-less generals pose no real threat. To advance, we need the strength that comes from numbers: “Though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him — a threefold cord is not quickly broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:12).
Although many men have been trained to deny it, we desire friendship. When honesty prevails, grown men miss the days of sword fighting, tackle football in the backyard, and watching Karate Kid past bedtime. A strange ache groans through the cracks of our self-sufficiency.
And it’s not as though brotherhood cannot be found. We see examples of it in at least two places outside of the church: the military and gangs. Warfare, it seems, breeds a brotherhood foreign in peacetime. A brother is born for — and created in — adversity (Proverbs 17:17). The fires of combat meld men into brothers.
And here lies the great irony: Christian men fight in the greatest war imaginable, yet rarely experience such comradeship. We are deployed against a supernatural enemy, and as shells fly all around us, we split up, each to his own way. We battle for higher stakes than any other conflict the world has known, and we go for it solo. And as we individually charge the enemy’s machine-gun nest, we wonder why we routinely are cut down. Foolishness and pride, not courage and faith, lead us to storm the gates of hell alone.

“To advance, we need the strength that comes from numbers.”

As Christian men we sit on the white horse, generals of families and churches, while Satan snipes at us with special persistence. We are men under fire. And men under fire survive where a man under fire doesn’t. Our enemy has been implementing divide and conquer since Cain and Abel. Few of us know the immense privilege that Whitefield speaks of when he states,
It [is] an invaluable privilege to have a company of fellow soldiers continually about us, animating and exhorting each other to stand our ground, to keep our ranks, and manfully to follow the Captain of our Salvation, though it be through a sea of blood.
Why do we not band together as brothers in arms? Because we have forgotten that we are at war. We sail through life oblivious of the submarine’s torpedo — until we’ve been hit. Too few of our churches have blood brothers because too few of our churches know wartime bloodshed.
