IN THE IMAGE OF GOD

Men have been created from the beginning in the image of God….this article is a challenge and an encouragement to the MAN who is in a limbo and is willing and humble to embark on the journey to do soul search and find God's purpose for his life

No Cliché: Genesis 1:27-So God created man in his own image and in the image of God created He him… Genesis 2:5….there was not a man to till the ground,

verses 7and 8 confirm that the MALE gender has been given specific commands and should manifest in abundance, God’s many divine characteristics especially patience,maturity(Wisdom), love, longsuffering, mercy and forgiveness.

These characteristics are expected to be made manifest most importantly with his spouse.

God was extremely disappointed with Adam in Genesis 3:17-19, because he failed the first TESTING of his life woefully.

Unfortunately the male gender of our time has fallen very deep in the miry clay of a high level of ignorance in his understanding of WHOM and WHOSE he is.

Many are walking and functioning in a daze and huge halo not having a direction or focus, feeling their way around in the darkness of seeking for self and eventually COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET!!!!!!

Spiritually, many are DEAD-MEN, men who are like trees walking.

1 Timothy 3:2, 12 "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband(A MAN) of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach. . . . Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well."(This is not an encouragement of dictatorship but HUMBLE servitude of God through those entrusted to such a man!)

God has given unto man special responsibilities for the rest of the family to learn from and follow in his steps.

A man who has nothing to offer can not lead as God expects; to be a true leader of God’s family needs a high level of humility and maturity, a callous, vindictive,non-challant,egoistic and irresponsible ‘boy’ (*supposed MAN) can not be handed the mantle of leadership, he will derail a MIGHTY GLORIOUS SHIP!

Man can do nothing in his own power and strength, asking for the leading of the Holy Spirit is pure wisdom as stated in the book of James,to be like God who has formed him in His own image.

 

Titus 2 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: 2 that the older MEN be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience….



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Thanks a lot Robin, all points noted to the glory of the most High God. Am blessed to know that someone , somewhere is being blessed by the message within the message.

In your article you bring out several great points! However, men are not the only one who has fallen short. We all have! Only with the power of God living in us, can we ever hope to be great leaders. Yet we must remember, even the great and mature make mistakes! Only in Christ can we ever hope to get it right, and it's the power of God working in us--not our human flesh--that gets it right. In Timothy it also says to be an example in life, liberty, speech, faith and love. This is an awesome goal to work toward, However, in our humanity we will not reach perfection until Christ comes and changes us. We stand only in His righteousness--leaders or lay people. I think one of the words, "characters" should actually be "characteristics." Also, it might help to try to combine some of your one or two sentence paragraphs or expound and add more to them. You have a great message to share with all of us!
