A Man of God

Scripture: 2 Timothy 3: [17] so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Observation: That is what I want to be, “a man of God.” I remember a story about a football player they named “MOG”(Man of God), because he didn’t compromise his faith. That is what I want to be known as by the people who know me. It has been on my heart to get busy for God and start fulfilling my purpose to do good works.

Application: I need to continue to read my Bible and really study and understand what is in the Bible. I need to get thoroughly equipped. God has put on my heart small groups, counseling and to finish rewriting my book and yet I spend very little time doing any of it. I need to devote myself on accomplishing what God has given me to do.

Prayer: Dear Lord show me how to be thoroughly equipped to do the work you call me to do. Give me success in being the man of God you want me to be.

An Instrument for Noble Purpose

Scripture: 2 Timothy 2: [21] If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

Observation: Before I can be used as an instrument for God there are things I need to cleanse myself of. I need to cleanse myself from greed, anger, laziness, pride, lying, lustful thoughts and so much more. I can’t present myself before God covered in sin. I need to choose to separate myself from sin and glorify God.

Application: I need to be constantly aware of what I’m thinking and doing. I need to make right decisions and focus on how to honor God. My goal is to be that vessel that God can use for good works.

Prayer: Dear Lord help me be this vessel you desire me to be. Prepare me to do good works in glory and honor to you.
