Jesus needs a few good men

Jesus used 11 men to "fill Jerusalem with this doctrine" and "turn the world up-side-down." That 11 soon became 10s of 
thousands in the first church in Jerusalem.

Only 102 Pilgrims boarded the Mayflower to cross the Atlantic for freedom's cause. This small group was the seed for the American Colonies.

America's First Great Awakening, an overwhelming spiritual revival in our nation, which led to the 

Only 3% of the American Colonists sufficed to start the Revolution that birthed our nation, 
now over 300 million strong.

Dads, men, are you willing to be one of the few good men for whom God is looking?
