America Needs Godly Men

GENESIS 18:16-22

    I remember many years ago a sign that always caught my attention. A picture of Uncle Sam pointing his finger, and saying I want you. I believe God is pointing his finger at  men and is saying, "I want you."

   Now this sermon applies to all, but I want to speak to all the men out there this morning. "God wants you Sir." He wants you to be a man of God, He wants you to be the head of your house, He wants you to be the high priest of your family, and He wants you to be a leader in the church.

   I am convinced that America needs more Godly men, just as much as we need the military, education, etc. If our families are to be what God intended them to be, if our churches are to be what God intended them to be, and if our nation is to be what God intended it to be, we must have more Godly men in America.

   A Godly man is a man who has

I. Established a personal relationship with God.

    1. He knows God personally. How? Only through the

        son (John 14:6)

       A. Means knowing Jesus as Savior, notice the words

            of Paul in (II Tim. 1:12)

            1. (Rom.10:9,10,&13)

       B. Means knowing Jesus as Lord .(Philip.2:9-11)

             1. The word, "Lord" in the New Testament is a

                 Greek word which means, "owner, master,


       C. The proportion in which I know my Lord is the

            proportion in which I am prepared to serve Him.

    2. He maintains a daily walk with God. (Gen. 5:24)

       A. Walking with God means to go in God's direction.

       B. Walking with God means to share His


II. His priorities in order. (God Fly. Self)

    1. He places God first in every area and above

        everything else. (Philip. 3:8-10)

       A. He keeps the 10 commandments

            1. If we do, then why so many activities on the

                Lord’s day? (Exd.20:8)

    2. He maintains the proper family/work relationship.

        A. Making a life is more significant than making a


    3. He makes sure his family's priorities are right.

        A, (Joshua 24:15)

III. His teaching and preaching in order

   1. He teaches his family God's truth through God's

       Word. (Deut. 6:5-7)

    2. He applies God's Word to all he does. (James 1:22)

        A. He is more than a hearer of the word, he is a doer

             of the word.

    3. He teaches

        A. Kindness by being thoughtful and gracious even

             at home.

        B. Patience by being gentle and understanding over

             and over at home.

       C. Honesty by keeping his promises to his family

            even when it costs.

      D. Courage by living unafraid with faith, in all

           circumstances before his wife and children.

        E. Justice by being fair and dealing equally with


      F. Obedience to God's Word by precept example as

           he reads and prays daily with his family.

     G. Love for God and His Church as he takes his family

          regularly to all the services.



Daddy had a little boy,
His soul was white as snow.
He never went to Sunday School
Cause Daddy wouldn't go.

He never heard the Word of God.
That thrills the childish mind,
While other children went to class,
This child was left behind.

As he grew from babe to youth,
Dad saw to his dismay,
A soul that once was snowy white,
Became a dingy gray.

Realizing that his son was lost,
Dad tried to win him back.
But now the soul that once was white,
Had turned an ugly black.

Dad even started back to church,
And Bible study too;
He begged the preacher,
"Isn't there a thing you can do?"

The preacher tried, failed, and said
"We're just too far behind,
I tried to tell you years ago,
But you would pay me no mind."

And so another soul was lost,
That once was white as snow
Sunday School would have helped,
But Daddy wouldn't go.
