Every Man Perfect #4 - Growing Up

In a continuation of the Every Man Perfect series, which is for all people, not just for men, Philip Alley discusses what it means to grow and mature in Christ and faith. This is for the benefit of others, and the kingdom of God.

Every Man Perfect #3 - Clothes Make the Man



Mark Twain said, in a well-known quote, “Clothes make the man……naked people have little or no influence on society”. In his message, Philip Alley draws a parallel between this statement and the matter of being clothed spiritually. The Bible has much to say about what we should be spiritually clothed with, and what is to be put off and got rid of. The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Colossians, instructed the people to get rid of anger, rage, malice, slander, filthy language, deception, evil desire and greed. Paul then goes on to say that we are to be clothed with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. James describes evil thoughts as showing favouritism and discriminating against others. Immature people, says Philip, react while mature persons respond. Philip then goes on to describe the spiritual armour that Paul speaks of in his letter to the Ephesians, giving detail of the attributes of each item and the purpose of each one. Philip closes with a quote from Paul. “When you have done everything to stand, stand firm”.

Every Man Perfect #2 - Our Lives Are Not Our Own



John Alley commences his message with a reading from the book of Jeremiah which teaches that our lives are not our own – it is not for a man to direct his own steps. John then goes to the book of Luke, emphasizing the need for repentance. God is patient and merciful, says John, and while He gives another chance for His people to repent, there is a point where, if left too long, the person is unable to repent. John goes on to discuss the need to rebuild the Church Council. Weak leadership, says John, causes the flock to be scattered. John reads from Acts and Luke, teaching on what makes a real man. Real men, says John, are tender hearted, generous and hard working, ready to help others and full of the Holy Spirit. John concludes his message with discussion of the things with which we are meant to be clothed, never being separated from Christ our head.

Every Man Perfect #1



When a nation loses its way spiritually, says John Alley, other things slide also. This statement was in response to a recent report that the standards of students’ results in learning have become drastically lower than previously. However, says John, by our prayers the Lord turns all things around to show His glory. John goes on to state that everything goo din this world can be traced back to the gospel – medal breakthroughs, care for the aged and underprivileged and great inventions all had their beginnings in Christianity. However, when an atheistic society gets hold of these good things and twists them to an extreme position, corruption occurs. John refers to Colossians 1:28, where reference is made to “every man perfect”, explaining that according to Scripture we all should strive to be perfect as God is perfect. John emphasizes the need for strong men in leadership in the Church. We must be very prayerful, says John, in these times when there is an agenda afoot to twist and distort that which God meant for good.
