That Man is You! is about a vision ... that you experience. Normally, we have the ability to lead you through it, but in this mini-series, we must jump right in! What does it mean to be a man?
Christ was proclaimed “the man” at precisely the moment that he offered his life for his bride. We must carefully consider this moment. It will teach us much about the heart of a man.
The Church is purified in the water flowing from Christ’s wounded heart. It is a heart that has a consuming thirst for an encounter with God the Father. This is the light shining on manhood for all men including the first man.
To be a man means embracing the sacrifice asked by God the Father for the sake of the bride. When we do so, our heart becomes a channel for grace that purifies and gives life to the bride. Living this calling has been a challenge “from the beginning.”

In Session 1, we saw that Jesus Christ was declared “the man” precisely in the moment that he offered himself for the bride. In that moment, he became the “prodigal Adam.” We must carefully consider the mystery of Adam. It will reveal much about our own hearts.
In Session 2, we saw that God developed in Adam’s heart a desire to be “like God.” Adam separated his heart from God and all creation fell. Jesus Christ became the “prodigal Adam” to restore what was lost be Adam. But we must go much further!
We must discover the primacy of mercy. Mercy is ESSEN...
We have seen that we were created to be “like God.” We were created to become a manifestation of God the
Father ... who is “rich in mercy” (Ephesians 2:4). Men have struggled to live their noble calling “from the beginning.” We are struggling to live it now.
