Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
What strikes me most today
St. Paul was tough, and he doesn't mince words telling people to be men. St. Paul knew that being a disciple of Christ meant being a soldier. In this picture, we even get a preview of a similar message that St. Paul will be giving in Ephesians 6:10.
The picture we often get of Christian men is one of a quiet, reserved, always turn the other cheek wimpy guy. That is not the image St. Paul had or wants us to have; he wants us to be strong, committed, fearless fighters for our faith, our families, and most importantly, our Lord!
