Mike Glenn · Genesis 3:1-19 · Luke 22:26 · Ephesians 5:23

In Genesis 3, Adam abdicated his role as the spiritual leader. (The fact that God questioned him first demonstrates his responsibility.) As a result of the fall, man is tempted to use his strength for selfish gain. The heart of biblical masculinity is that through the gospel God forges a sense of benevolent responsibility to lead, provide for, and protect. Together, men learn to lead as “one who serves” (Luke 22:26).
