About Me

A Double-Barrelled Man of God

    But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, meekness. Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold to the eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed the good confession before many witnesses.1 Timothy 6:11-12

    Who am I? Everyone asks themselves this question at some point in their life. For me the answer is simple, I’m a man of God. I don’t just give myself to the Lord, I give my whole being; everything that I was, am and will be with all my energy to Him. A God-man is one who flees from sin, pursues righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and meekness; fights the good fight, lays hold to the eternal life and confesses the good confession before many people. A God-man is what every Christian should be with every fibre of their being and a God-man is what I am. However this wasn’t always the case.

    As a relative newcomer to the Lord’s recovery I didn’t live according to 1 Timothy 6:11-12. I would even go as far as to say that most of the time I was ashamed of the gospel; but that all changed when I went on the blending trip to California. Meeting the saints and attending the trainings opened my eyes to what a God-man should be.

    Let no one despise your youth, but be a pattern to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.2 Timothy 4:12

    To become a man of God I had to look to Christ and let Him perfect me, teach me, convict me, correct me and instruct me. I had to let go of my pride and shame and believe that even at my young age the Lord could and would still use me. I could still be a pattern to the believers.

  1. I just say ‘amen!’ to you. It wasn’t long ago when the Lord shined to me the matter on why I feel shame when I want to speak the gospel. I learned that I was loving myself more than I do love the Lord. But thank Him that though living absolutely the God-man life “wasn’t always the case”, still we can come back and turn to Him to look to Him and let Him work Himself into us more!

  2. Hi David, my name is Perla and I am a serving one at Bibles for America. We would like to get your email if is possible. BfA would like to send an email to the saints who have a blog. Feel free to send me your email at the email address I provided below. Thank you.
