WHO ARE THE MEN GOD CAN USE IN THIS GREAT HOUR OF NEED? No. 3a

3. MEN WHO ARE EXEMPLARY

These are men who are worthy of being imitated. Jesus Christ was, and still is, forever the perfect man, who is infinitely more worthy to be followed and imitated than all other men.

The supreme reason why God has given us His Holy Spirit is that we should be conformed into the image of His son. Romans 8:29 says, "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

The Apostle Paul was called by Christ to be an example to follow. Acts 9:15 says, "He is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel." Paul himself stated in 1 Corinthians 11:1, "Be ye therefore followers of me, even as I also am of Christ."

In this desperate hour in our nation, we need Christian men who will not be content with the status quo. We need men who will refuse 21st century normality. The image displayed by the 1st century Christians is a far cry from His image revealed in our current century. It is almost barely recognizable.

To be continued.

Be encouraged. Colin
