What A Man!

We must by all means take seriously the challenge to step up and be the man God wants us to
be. However, we need to understand that it is an attainable goal. If we are not careful we can get in a
cycle of attaining steps of progression and never realize what is taking place. There are people around
us that we may look up to and say “wow, what a man.” Do you realize that when we stand before God
and He says “well done my good and faithful servant,” that those words can be likened to Him looking at
you and saying “wow, what a man?” This life is about more than taking steps of progression. It is about
achieving a life in Christ and that life is attainable.
Are you hearing what I am saying? It is attainable. You can become what God wants you to be.
It’s not just achieving step after step and if you make it to the end then you are okay. It is a marathon
and not a sprint but it is not about the survival of the fittest either. Those steps of progression we are
making are for us to understand that we are making it. Just as we look at others and say “wow, what a
man,” we need to learn to look in the mirror and say the same of ourselves. Judge it by these verses.
Psalms 15:1-5
LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors
those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and
does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.
We can be the man God wants us to be. We can accomplish what God wants for us to
accomplish. Learn to be encouraged. I’m not talking about arrogance, or pride but a genuine honest
encouragement that drives us to maintain the course to the end.
Man_Up and hear Him say “What A Man.”
