A lot of men are confused these days. We live in confusing times. We want to know, “Who am I and what should I do?”
 
Here is what God said to Adam and what he’s saying to all his sons.
 
God’s mandate to men   Genesis 1:28  

First, God blessed them – His message is, “You are loved. You’re my child. Live that way.” Then, he said, “Here is your assignment on earth” listing these five tasks:

  1. Be fruitful – plant, nurture, harvest
  2. Increase in number – procreate, put godly DNA in humanity
  3. Fill the earth – take territory from the enemy & spread Kingdom
  4. Subdue it – fight the enemy & put the earth under God’s authority
  5. Rule over it – steward creation with godly governance

We may be confused, but our Creator God is not. We would do well to start here at the very beginning of God’s message to man and focus on this five-fold mandate. Take a few minutes to meditate on this and compare God’s word with your own confusing thoughts. I’ve found the clarity it brings to be startling.
