A Preacher’s Misconception
Topic: What is a real man
Sub-Topic: Basic Response
For the next couple of posts, I will be teaching in the perspective of what it really means to be a real man and what women should learn to look for when dating to find a godly man. I know a lot of people think they are saved by going to church every now and then and then some people think they are already a man by having facial hair, car, money, job or having kids. I advise everyone who is paying attention and learning from my posts to pay attention to these next few weeks especially because you will learn a lot. So continue to learn and allow God mold you and shape you for his purpose. I do want to point out that there are 3 types of men, there are godly men (Spiritual men), Earthly Men (Men of the world), and then last but not least is men that are in between (Lukewarm Men), meaning men that say they believe in God but are not godly men, they are men of what the Bible calls lip service. They call on gods name but do not do what God has called them to do and be who God has them to be. Which man are You?
In the name of Jesus, I come to you tonight to give you the praise Lord, I come to thank you, Lord, for allowing those who read these posts to learn and grow in your word. Please bless those who read and those who take heed to these posts. Protect them and guide to show them who you really are. In the name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.
Last week was a teaching on why the phrase “God knows my heart” is wrong and why its interpretation is wrong. Tonight as I stated earlier in this post we will be learning about what a real man looks like. I know there is this perceived notion that you can become a product of your environment which can lead you into learning about the wrong things about what a real man looks like because that is the environment that you grew up in. I want to take some time for the next couple of weeks a discuss what a real man looks like. So let us take a look at what a real man looks like with these verse for the night.
1 Timothy 6:11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
This is a great example of what a real man is. A real man is a godly man who stands on the Word of God. Godly women can’t just be with just any man. The Bible clearly explains that a man of God will pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love steadfastness and gentleness. Understand that a real man is not about fighting, gang banging, drugs, the amount of money he makes, or looks. This part is for women. Women seek a man that is godly if he his not then do not spend any time fooling around with someone who only there to bring you down, separates you from your family, friends, and being a good mother. A lot of times women seek for pleasure and protection. God is your only protection, know this, a man can only do but so much in this flesh body. Now about looks, You can have the man that you are most attracted too but he can end up tearing you apart from everything and everyone. Now don’t get me wrong a godly man can tear you down also but a real godly man wouldn’t do that. I will explain about that next time. This bible verse explains what a real man looks like if you are a man who believes in God then know that you are not a Christian man until you follow by the word of God.
Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
It is imperative that as men we have a relationship with God. A relationship with God is not just believing in him for even demons believe in God, so what makes believing in God the only requirement to be saved? A relationship with God involves a prayer life, walking with God through works, and actions. God holds us men more responsible for the things that go on in our house, the way we raise our children and how we treat our parents, girlfriend/wife, children, our elders and peers and everyone else around us. Establish a relationship with God and see how God will bless you and your family. Turn from your wicked ways and seek the Lord for the Lord will teach and show you what a godly man is.
Tonight I wanted you to understand that a man is not a man until he is a godly man who seeks God and humbles himself under the mighty hand of God. Stay true to the word of God and he will bless you. You cannot follow by the way of the world’s definition of a man because it will lead you astray causing you to bring about confusion and hatred which leads to death. Whatever you do, do it for God, not for man. Next week we will be going deeper into discussing what a real father looks like. I don’t have any kids right now but this is also good for me to learn about so when I do have kids then I will know how to be a good father and not by the standards of the world but by the word of God. Thank you for reading this week, Be Blessed and Be Safe.
