A godly man, from scripture. by bigplew

I recently did a little study on scriptures that encourage me to be a stong, biblical, masculine, godly, humble man. I’ve been using these in my devotions to stir my heart to apply God’s word and hopefully grow in being more godly. So, I thought it could be useful to share some of them with you. Enjoy.

Scriptures:

Joshua 1:9 — “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 — “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.”

1 Corinthians 15:58 — “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

Acts 5:29 — “But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’”

Titus 2:6 — “Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled.”

2 Timothy 2:22 — “So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.”

1 Timothy 4:12 — “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”

I especially love that last one, that you as young men, can set an example for all believers in how you live and walk out your life.

I also have been using this in my devotions to walk thru the gospel from scripture.

Or you were so focused on something different, that you overlooked
an obvious clue. You can uncover these unadvertised
jobs and get back into the driving seat by putting together a carefully crafted direct approach letter.
However, the change happens, you move careers and all
of a sudden you find yourself alone.

Thank you for some other informative blog. Where else may just I am getting that
type of information written in such an ideal way?
I have a undertaking that I’m just now operating on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
