A REAL MAN - by Keith Cook

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." 1 Corinthians 13:11

MATURE - A Real Man is Mature In All Respects

A real man has put aside childish things and has spiritually grown up. That is not to say that he does not have fun or suddenly becomes somber and serious, but it does mean that every area of a Godly man's life is maturing and growing under the direction of the Holy Spirit.

ADVANCING - A Real Man is Advancing The Kingdom Of God

A true man takes care of his family and career but he also makes sure the Kingdom of God is advancing. He helps his local church by giving of his time, talents, money, and prayers. He ministers in his community. He assists other ministries as they go around the world for Jesus. He truly sees his place in ministry and does not run from his responsibilities to be a man of God. He does not loose focus of being a part of God's overall plan for winning the lost.

NEW NATURE - A Real Man is Controlled by a NEW Nature.

His character and conscience is clean. The man he is in public is the man he is in private.

His children see him as real and not fake. His wife knows he is not a hypocrite and that he is trustworthy.

Everyday the real man of God is getting in the Word of God and searching the scriptures and asking God to show him any wicked way that may be in his life.

Being controlled by the Holy Spirit takes daily dying to self and a minute-by-minute dependence on God's provision and right to direct one's life.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will continue to raise up Real Men who are serious in their walk with Him and seeking to Mature, Advance, and be Controlled by a New Nature.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's "Adopt An Evangelist" program. This program provides funding and support for various missions and evangelists around the world.
