Scripture and the Christian Man

Posted On October 28, 2015

, Scripture and the Christian Man, Servants of Grace, Servants of GraceThomas Watson said, “A godly man is a lover of the Word.” The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, sufficient, and authoritative Word of God. It testifies from the first word in Genesis to the last word in Revelation of the Son of God and Man—Jesus Christ. On the road to Emmaus, Jesus opened the eyes of the disciples walking with him so they could understand the meaning of all Scripture, as fulfilled in Him (Luke 24).

When we come to the Bible, we come to be fed by the life-giving Word, and live under the authority of the Word. This is so we won’t be hearers only, but doers of the Word (James 1:22).

We become men of God by first loving the Word by believing what it says, and putting it into practice in daily life. Obedience in the Christian life is only possible because we’ve been born again. The result of being born again is that we will love God, His Word, and His people. Daily reading the Word will result in being men of integrity, in private and in public. Duplicity in our lives will be replaced by transparency and authenticity in our home life and at Church.

Rather than hiding behind a mask as we come to become men who love the Word, we will come out into the Light to have our sin exposed, be convicted of it, and empowered to live on mission to the glory of God.

A growing knowledge and understanding of Scripture is essential to a healthy Christian life. Every day this month, I encourage you to read your Bible. If you have a smartphone get the YouVersion app (available for free in the Apple or Google Play Store) so you can listen to the Bible on your car ride into work or when you’re on a break at work.

Being a man of the Word is essential to being a man of God. Open the Word, study the Word, meditate on the Word, memorize the Word, and obey the Word, through the work of the Holy Spirit. A Christian man is one known by the Word, and who walks in the light of the Word.
