The Christian Man

The Christian man: Looks at himself in the mirror yet does not forget who he is (James 1:23-25). In using sound judgment, he obeys the Word of God; As God has allotted to each one a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). The Christian man fights the good fight of faith and holds onto a good conscience (1Timothy 1:18-19); He crucifies his sinful nature with its passions and desires and keeps in step with the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:24-25). The Christian man loves his wife as he loves himself sacrificially and receives respect from her (Ephesians 5:33); He does not provoke his children but brings them up in the training and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). The Christian man shows respect for authority both at work and in his community and serves wholeheartedly in everything he does as if he were serving the Lord and not man (Ephesians 6:5-7); He uses his gifts in proportion to his faith (Romans 12:6), often speaking to men for their edification, exhortation and comfort (1 Corinthians 14:3). The Christian man lets his love suffer long and is not boastful or proud. Nor is he rude or self-centered. His great love for God allows him not to be easily angered or remember past conflicts. The Christian man does not rejoice over sin, in any way, but only in what is true. The Christian man’s love always protects those around him, always has hope for the future in spite of circumstances that surround him. Giving him an enduring and persevering character (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). The Christian man can expect opposition when they do God’s work (2 Timothy 3:12); So will do everything to stand firm (Ephesians 6:13-14), with the full armor on, will wait on His Master, who will grant him the Crown of Righteousness (2 Timothy 4:8). The Christian man will lay down his crowns at the feet of his Savior, hearing these words. . . Well done thou good and faithful servant! Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world (Matthew 25:34).

Father God, thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ. The Savior of the world who has blessed us with the sacrifice of Himself on the cross, and by Your Spirit’s power gloriously has risen from the dead! We celebrate our risen Lord and our inheritance to spend all eternity with You! Bless us to be a blessing to others and help us fulfill Your calling on our lives. In Jesus name, Amen
