A Preacher’s Misconception
Topic: What is a real man?
Sub-Topic: The heart of a man
I pray that everyone or at least a few people have been expecting these posts every week. Thank you to those people who have been expecting these posts. I really want to bring a light out into the world to show what being saved is really about. I know a lot of people think that they know but I want to bring about truth, according to the word of God. If there are any topics that I can cover for another time in the future that you want to know about then please comment. 🙂 All comments are welcomed.
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.
Last week I started a lesson into learning what a real man is, this week I want to continue this with you for at least 3 to 4 more weeks depending upon where I believe I should go next. I know this is a big topic but I will be sure to try and get at most of the important stuff down. Without further ado, let us take a look at scripture for tonight.
Titus 2:7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,
When it comes to being a father according to the word of God, we have to understand that being a good role model is really important, You cannot be a good role model if your cursing, committing fornication, lying, stealing, cheating, committing adultery, or someone who does drugs. How can anyone be a godly role model to someone else when they are dismissing the word of God. As a man, it is our responsibility to help show others especially kids what a real man is because they look up to us. As I said before it’s not about money, fame, women, drugs, cursing, cars or anything of the world but its the gospel itself. If you are a man who wants to be a role model then teach nonviolence, teach being respectful to all races, teach how to love, teach how to respect, teach how to respect their elders & teach by example that means do these things then others will see that light that shines within you.
Psalm 119:9-16 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes! With my lips, I declare all the rules of your mouth. …
Right now I am going to speak a little on what we talked about in part 13, which is why “God Knows My Heart” is not an excuse to justify your sin. Understand this about the heart as I said before we must have a pure heart and with a pure heart, we then can lead others as men in Christ. Luke 6:45 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of”. Ladies, Be sure that the man you’re with is a leader not in the earthly sense but the spiritual sense. To be a spiritual man he first has to truly accept God into his life and read the Bible and remember you cannot believe without actions. I do want to talk about prayer in the future so be sure to look out for that. Now the Bible specifically answers the question of how a man can stay pure and the answer is simple it is guarding your walk with Christ with the word of God. When a man says “God Knows My Heart” then they do not mean their spiritual heart because if it was about the spiritual sense then they would not have said that statement but come to God in repentance and thus turning away from their sin. It is vital that we not only men but women also have a pure heart which starts from seeking God.
Tonight’s post was about being a father according to the bible, a good father will show himself as a good role model and the way we stay there is by having a pure heart. Will it get hard and will we make mistakes, Yes we will but understand what the Bible says about a Christian who sins. 1 John 3:9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning because they have been born of God. So we will have our falls every now and then. Until next time, Be Safe and Be Blessed everyone.
