HOAW Phase I: The Compass (Heart Calibration)


Why do we do what we do? Why do we do the very things we hate to do? Why is our behavior inconsistent or even opposed to what we say we believe? This series will help us become men of honor and integrity by aligning our hearts with God's heart. Our behavior, good or bad, is reflective of what's in our hearts. Let's let the scalpel of God's word perform surgery on our hearts so that our lives bring glory instead of shame to the Father. These lessons will help you become a man after God's heart.

Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else, guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life." Our hearts are comprised of central beliefs, core values, worldview, and motives. Our central beliefs establish our values, our values inform our worldview, our worldview conditions our motives, and our motives energize our behavior. If we want our behavior to bring glory and honor to the Father, then our beliefs must be biblically centered, our values biblically informed, our worldview reflective of God's perspective, and our motives biblically focused.

HOAW Phase I – The Compass; this series will help you calibrate your heart (beliefs, values, attitudes, and motives) to the heart of God so you will be able to navigate the journey we call life.  Living a life of integrity, authenticity, courage, and honor under the authority of God will result in a godly legacy.  You will not be the same man when you complete the journey.  You will be pleased with the result.

At the end of the journey you will develop a Personal Battle Plan and a 6-month Implementation Strategy.  No one really cares what you have to say until they observe how you live.  If you live a life of integrity and honor under God’s authority people will ultimately want to hear what you have to say, even if they disagree with you.  Why?  Because they can’t get past a life well lived.  They may attempt to deconstruct your faith proclamation or refute what you say you believe.  But they cannot deconstruct a life well lived.
