WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO AS GOD’S MEN
“How can you have faith when you seek glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the one who alone is God?” John 5:44
FACT: God does not weigh our actions before men as much as he weighs intentions before Him.
You see when it comes to having a “spiritual life” our actions for God may be all right but our hearts may be all wrong. We may be seen doing something spiritual or a “good deed” but the real question is: are we doing spiritual things or good deeds in order to be seen? A lot of men use promised recognition as a motive for doing what should be done for its own sake as a man of God.
Action: God’s man carries on his life as if the only opinion that matters is God’s alone. This is what Jesus’s words are all about here. If it is essential for you to be seen then that action for God is not essential. The visible side of our lives and the events that comprise them do not need to be Explained in visible terms to anyone.
Jesus said, “Your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Just keep getting healthy, strong, and going into God’s purposes because it’s what God has called you to do.

A loving man. A ‘keeper.’ But I had spent so much time focusing on being strong, blaming men and being independent that I did not know how to partner, enjoy, and affirm him to build a strong marriage and family. I now am re-learning what feminism failed to tell me about men and marriage.” She had met a third wave man and is now joining millions of women on a similar journey that transcends the narrow elements and borders of feminism. She is becoming a third wave woman (i.e., a blend of traditional and progressive) that:
Dating for a God’s Man: 4 Keys to Success
|Dating is one of the most interesting social studies. Two people with different personalities begin a relationship; with past baggage, a variety of ‘cultural’ expectations, socio-economic histories, family background, values, morals and faith — you might wonder if it’s possible to think that dating can actually lead to marriage.
From the very opening line to the closing technique, finding dating truths for God’s man can be difficult because there’s not much “dating,” as we know it today, in the Bible.
