“The Man of God concept is rooted in identity. The man of God sees himself as “of God” and as such wants to live from the Source of life. Choices, pursuits, interests increasingly orient around God for the man of God. This isn’t to say that all men of God think and do alike, because there is a great deal of creativity in God and we all have our part in the tapestry of the Story.
The man of men orients himself around human-only pursuits and choices. His core motivation is where the differentiation begins. The man of men pursuits and choices are set in self focus in orientation – and by my observation – set upon conquering (women, money, possessions, activities, etc). This contrasts with man of God pursuits and choices centered upon pleasing God and evidenced with a new heart motivation. The actions sometimes may look the same or different on the surface – but there is a recognizable difference in the weight or motive or spirit.”
2 Timothy 3.16, 17 – “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
