REAL MEN LIVE SACRIFICIALLY!

Tim and Kim Hodge

Note these words of the Apostle Paul: “When I was a child, I spoke 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, NKJV). There is a plain progression from boyhood to manhood. We can wrap it all up in the final five words, “I put away childish things.”

Let’s look at that a little deeper so we can understand the meaning. Childish! What does a child demonstrate? They pout when they don’t get their way. They pout if they don’t have a certain toy. They pout about this. They pout about that. Here they pout. There they pout. Basically, the childish mindset is wrapped up all in SELF. Phrases like, “It’s MINE,” “I want this,” “I don’t want that,” etc. It’s all listed as “I” and “MINE.”

In understanding what a REAL MAN exemplifies, according to the Apostle Paul, there comes a time in the transition from boyhood to manhood that a MAN makes the decision to “put away childish things.” To grasp this, the word ‘things’ here does not refer to ‘stuff’ but it refers to ‘actions’ and ‘attitudes.’ So, this morphing from boyhood to manhood is exemplified by a drastic change in actions and attitudes.

REAL MEN FEAR!

Tim and Kim Hodge

Tim and Kim Hodge

By Pastor Tim Hodge
FEAR! That’s a BIG word in our big world. Who wasn’t engrossed in at least one element of “FEAR FACTOR” when it had its long run on television? I mean, come on, they ran the gamut of arenas of fear on that show from eating bugs, eating raw meat, being suspended at astronomical heights, being locked in enclosed dark places, to having to crash speeding vehicles. ‘FEAR’ — everyone has some element of it, but not everyone wants to talk about it.

There are two types of ‘FEAR.’ First is what I will term as ‘HEALTHY FEAR.’ This can also be understood as a reverential fear or great appreciation of something’s power. For example, if you are on the roof of a house you may not want to work on a gymnastics routine. Why? In that case, it will be a healthy dose of the FEAR of gravity that could keep you from falling off and breaking something (or worse). This type of FEAR is also the type of FEAR we are to have toward God. On several occasions the Bible states that the ‘FEAR’ of the Lord is the initial element of getting wisdom (cf. Psalms 11:10; Proverbs 1:7; 9:10). Therefore, a reverential FEAR of God is a necessity in life.

The second type of ‘FEAR’ is ‘UNHEALTHY FEAR.’ FEARS of this type may be termed as PHOBIAS. Some people have phobias of spiders. SPIDERS!?!? I can’t stand the boogers, but people who have ‘unhealthy FEARS’ will hurt you and/or themselves if confronted by a manifestation of their phobia. The reason these elements of FEAR become ‘unhealthy’ is because they give room to the devil to play on people’s minds. These unhealthy phobias can literally open a person’s life to becoming oppressed by a demon who antagonizes them with FEAR (see 2 Timothy 1:7 – “For God has not given us a spirit [literal Greek: demon] of FEAR….”].
