What does it mean to be a man? In years past the definition of what a man was and did seemed to have more clarity. For right or wrong the lines have blurred of late. Some of the changes have been good but some have made it much more difficult for a man to know what and who he is to be. So into the confusion we ask God what is it to be a man. In today’s message, we look at the most succinct list of what God calls a man to be: 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and the description of elder qualifications. While not all men will be called of God to the office of elder in a church, God does call all men to have this type of character. God is really for his adopted sons and desires them to work hard, in his grace, to be this kind of man. God is for you! Now work hard to be this kind of man.
