Men are often challenged by the many desires and dreams of success that he may encounter. Men mutually share in the same stress of becoming a man as well as being recognized as a man. Common grounds of marriage, sexual orientation, worldly passions, family and business are all part of the common thread in men. However, it has become a greater norm for men to become weathered in trying to stand for God and not the “world.”
Men who stand for God are categorized as “God’s Men.” These men have chosen to live their lives congruently with the character and Word of God. “God’s Men” are led by the spirit of Christ. Moreover, these men walk in fear of God to produce His character in the earth. Ordinary (worldly) men are able to use their intuition to navigate life when pursuing dreams and goals. Subsequently, there are good ordinary men who are not “Godly Men.” Therefore, what define these classifications of men are their disciplines, perspectives, spirituality and their love.
Ordinary men will look within their resources to solve problems, establish business and care for a family. An ordinary man is not designed to understand spiritual things. However, a God’s man depends on God as his primary source for thought, love and life. A God’s man may not be well versed in Scripture but he is devoted to walking in godly character. These men are more interested in their godly character more so than their social economic status.
A “God’s Man” is needed, yet oftentimes he is overlooked and pushed to the back. Society longs for good men, but the world will only change when the “God’s Man” stands up. These men will fight for justice, protect their homes, and defend their God. Recognizing and supporting God’s men will foster change in our communities, our homes and our churches. One of the issues facing society is not only men being out of place, but it is relative that God’s Men are not speaking up. The best commitment a man can make is to become a “God’s Man” and not remain an ordinary man.
