The Kind of Man God Wants You and Me to Become

Posted On June 24, 2016

What kind of man are you? I remember six months before meeting my now wife Sarah of almost ten years being convicted by the Holy Spirit. I wasn’t living how I knew a Christian should live at the time. Instead, I was living contrary to how a Christian should live. God was kind that day at that church in downtown Seattle as He convicted me of my sin and showed me how prideful I was. I then repented of my sin and asked the Lord to help me become a man of God. Six months after this I met my wife.

When I ask you the question, “What kind of man you are?” how does that make you feel? Perhaps today you feel secure in your manhood. You have a great job, marriage, and life seems to be going well. If that’s you today, I want to encourage you to praise God for His abundant grace.

I don’t know where you are at in life, or what’s going on with you today. One thing I do know though is this: Jesus knows. He sees, He cares, and He loves you. Jesus is fully God and fully man. Jesus is both like us and unlike us. He was a man just like us but unlike us, He was sinless. He bled, died, and rose for us, and now serves as our High Priest, Advocate, and Intercessor before the Father.

The kind of man God wants you to become is like Jesus. [bctt tweet=”Our God wants you to become a humble, fruits of the Spirit, and servant-hearted man of God. ” username=”servantsofgrace”]This kind of man loves his wife as Christ loved the church and sets an example for others to follow as he follows Jesus. This will take time and God by His Holy Spirit working in your life.

Perhaps today you were like me ten years ago. God got a hold of you and you remember that moment. Our God uses all the situations in our lives to help us become humble, Christ-dependent, and God-glorifying men that He wants us to become.
