Worship Planning Notes

God leads humble men in the way they should go. Humble men remain in covenant with God, keep the decrees of God, and are repentant. They fear God and follow God without ceasing. The theme for the day is not simply humility for the sake of being humble versus prideful; it is about humility being a prerequisite for receiving Godís guidance and teaching. The word ďhumbleĒ comes from the Latin word humus, which means earth or ground. Being humble means coming up from the ground, or growing. Therefore, humble men are men who desire to grow.

Music and liturgical dance and mime for Menís Day is suggested based on the four primary actions involved in men being able to grow through following Godís teachings:

  1. Recognizing that we are not perfect and asking God to reveal potential issues with humility is expressed through songs like:
    (a) Search Me Lord. By Thomas A. Dorsey (see 3b)
    (b) Humble Me. By Gabriel Roth (see 11b)
    (c) A Change in My Life. By Bill Strauss. Vocal arr. by Sean Altman (see 5a)

  2. Understanding that we cannot change all by ourselves and asking God to help us is expressed through songs like:
    (a) Lead Me, Guide Me. By Doris Akers (see 2c)
    (b) How Great Thou Art. By Stuart K. Hine. Arr. by Omar Dickenson (see 4c)
    (c) I Need You Now. By W. R. ďSmokieĒ Norful, Jr. (see 5d and 9b)

  3. Acknowledging ourselves as servants of God is expressed through songs like:
    (a) Iíll Serve Him. By John P. Kee (see 7b)
    (b) Use Me. By Ayanna Williams (see 11a)
    (c) Iíll Follow Where You Lead. By Marvin Winans, Barry Hankerson, and Carvin Winans (see 10b)

  4. Committing to following God is expressed through songs like:
    (a) Rise Up, O Men of God. By William P. Merrill and Aaron Williams (see 2a)
    (b) Iím Determined to Walk with Jesus. By Raymond Wise (see 3c)
    (c) Completely Yes. By Sandra Crouch (see 4a)

In accordance with the guiding Scripture below (or you may select another Scripture), music for each of these areas focuses on involving God.

Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy nameís sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that fears the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will show them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. (Psalm 25:8-15)

Bulletin/Order of Worship Notes

Consider publishing the guiding Scripture in your bulletin/Order of Worship on Menís Day along with how the songs your choir is performing align with the four primary actions listed above.

Also consider inserting into the bulletin a call for men to sign up for Bible study and for service.

Bible Study

In addition to Sunday worship, consider partnering with Christian Education, Youth Fellowship, or some other appropriate program in your church to extend the theme beyond one service with a focused Bible study. Study is a form of worship and is one of Godís decrees: Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). If we are unable to rightly divide Godís word in this area, we might easily confuse being humble before God with being doormats before humans. God has decreed we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37), but understanding humility as it relates to God is the key to being powerful men of God.

1. Litany

Leader: O Lord, on this glorious day show us the right way.

Congregation: "The Lord is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray" (Psalm 25:8, NLT).

Leader: Lord, teach us to be humble and to always seek the right path.

Congregation: Lord, we are humble men in all our ways as we search for you, drawing closer each day.

Leader: Teach us to be good husbands, fathers, leaders, and friends, never wavering in our love for you.

Congregation: "The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness to all who keep his covenant and obey His commands" (Psalm 25:10, NLT).

Leader: Lord, we are all sinners and have come short of your glory, but you O Lord, look beyond our fragility and see our need, forgive us over and over again.

Congregation: We thank you, O Lord, ďFor the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sinsĒ (Psalm 25:11 NLT).

ALL: Lord, today we commit ourselves to you as we walk in covenantal relationship with you. Show us the path you have chosen for us to live in prosperity, fearing only you, because you will keep us in perfect peace.
Amen.

13. Additional Suggestions for Menís Day Worship

(A) The Get DOWN (Become Humble) to Man UP Film Festival

Some people relate and understand better when they can see something instead of just hearing about it or reading about it. To help men of all ages see what this theme looks like in action, consider scheduling a combined film festival and Bible study where men get together to watch and discuss films that illustrate: (a) the presence or lack of humility in men, (b) men following or failing to follow Godís scriptural decrees, and (c) men coming to a deeper understanding of manhood as a result of their encounter with how Godís word says a man should live.

Consider showing one movie a week for several weeks leading up to Menís Day and a couple after Menís Day. For a more in-depth study, consider showing one movie a month. The Bible study can be held on Sunday after church, on a Saturday, on a Wednesday evening, or any other time that works for your church and or community.

Suggested Scriptures

Analyze these six Scriptures phrase by phrase and analyze each movie for evidence of each phrase.

  1. Psalm 25:8-15: Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy nameís sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that fears the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will show them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

  2. Philippians 4:8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

  3. James 5:12b: Let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay.

  4. Psalm 37:23a: The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.

  5. Philippians 3:13-14: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

  6. Luke 18:10-14: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ďGod, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.Ē And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, ďGod be merciful to me a sinner.Ē I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.

Suggested Movies

These movies are not stories about Bible characters. They are simply movies about men going about the business of living their lives. They take place in different time periods, and they donít have explicit religious messages. Some of them have fairly obvious connections to the scriptural theme(s), but some require closer study to determine the applicable themes. Some appeal to teenage men and others capture concerns of older men. Although all of the movies listed have been used quite effectively for Bible studies with varied populations of men, depending on the teaching expertise available to you, you might want to choose movies you think might be more appropriate for your particular population of Bible study facilitators and Bible students.

  1. Stomp the Yard
  2. Groundhog Day
  3. Buck and the Preacher
  4. Good Deeds
  5. Boyz n the Hood
  6. Menace II Society
  7. Strictly Ballroom
  8. The Best Man
  9. Idlewild
  10. Daddyís Little Girls
  11. A Soldierís Story
  12. Liar, Liar

Guiding Questions for Analyzing Each Movie

  1. Based on the suggested Scriptures, who is following God and who is faking it?
  2. How teachable are the men? Consider main characters and secondary characters.
  3. What are barriers to lessons that they could be taught? Consider not only the main charactersí attitudes and circumstances but also the actions and attitudes of others in the film.
  4. What are the positive and negative consequences of how the men manifest (or fail to manifest) humility, the ability to be taught, and growth?
  5. Are the men repentant or not? And with what consequences?
  6. Where and how do you see yourself in this movie?
  7. Based on the cited Scriptures, what will you do differently having seen these films?
