Man of God
Today I want to talk about the man of God.
What does it
mean to be a man of God?
Man of God is the description given to a man that follows God in every way, who obeys His commands with joy, who does not live for the things of this life but for the things of eternity, who willingly serves his God in giving freely of all his resources yet gladly suffers as a consequence of his faith.
Perhaps today's passage sums up the man of God in one neat verse:
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Our families, our churches, and the world need men of God. These are not just men who show up, but men who make strong, loving Christians, spiritual leaders, and teachers of future generations of men.
In the Bible, David stood his ground when confronted by the powerful religious leader, kings of other nations. David encourages us to stand strong in the face of persecution, knowing that God is at our side. We can expect opposition, resistance, and intimidation when we choose to share our faith, but in doing so, we learn that Christian growth requires intentional effort combined with God’s enabling. The man who live as God's word is a man of God.
