And if I would not have read this eye-opening book about Love, Sex, and DatingI would never have known. In it, I learned what qualities a godly man should have but also what qualities a godly woman should have. It was clear, concise, and a no-nonsense approach to topics the church tends to avoid.
Well, a good man makes sound decisions, is nice, and loves you based on a worldly standard. A godly man makes wise decisions, is kind, and loves you based on a godly standard. When you are looking for a long-term partner you want to make sure that he shares your faith and conviction with you.
We know that there is much more to being godly or god-seeking than that. Being a godly man means that he strives towards becoming more like Christ every day. But how can you really tell who is a good man according to the Bible? Well, I certainly do not have all the answers, but I found a few character traits that the Bible repeatedly mentions as godly characteristics.
Once you identify these in your love interest, chances are he is a man of God. Because persevering is extremely hard. But at the same time it extremely crucial. Without perseverance, you will give up every time you encounter challenges.
Which is a problem. Not one, not twice, but several times. Challenges, set-backs and flat out failures will happen, especially in relationships. And they will test your spirit, your love and your faith. Having someone by your side that knows how to persevere is important for you and your future family. Someone that knows that God is good all the time and that everything works together for your good. And if you are having trouble to find out if your love interest has perseverance, then just watch him in times of stress.
Does he give up quickly and lose all hope? Or does he trust God to make a way? Nowadays, the topic of submission has become a very sensitive topic for women. Read it for yourself. And while I am not going into detail about this topic, I think there is an easy way to solve that problem. If you want to ensure that you will enjoy submitting to your husband in the future, then the best thing you can do is to marry a man that is attentive and focused on the word of God.
Look for a man that does not get distracted by false teaching or his own worldly desires. But is committed to following and obeying Jesus while he is single. That way it will be easier for you to submit to him later in a marriage. A God-fearing man that knows that his riches are not earthly, but come from God. He has less difficulty to let go of worldly possessions and worries less about money. He knows that God can meet his needs and will provide for him in due time.
To me, generosity is a very important quality of a godly man because I want to be with someone that is a cheerful giver. Not just to me, but also to people in need. Besides your tithes and offering, you will encounter people that need help. A man that gives generously, attracts people that enjoy giving as well. And a community like that is sure to bless you and your future family when in need. Being responsible is a prime indicator of maturity and wisdom and therefore one of the more important characteristics of a godly man. In a relationship, you will face a lot of situations where someone needs to take charge and make a decision.
A godly man should be willing to do so spirit-led. But also take full responsibility for his actions in hindsight. And so, should a godly woman. Observe your boyfriend carefully when he is under fire. If he tends to avoid taking responsibility, remember that small decisions now, become big decisions later.
In addition, the Bible is very clear about the fact, that we will all have to face Jesus at one point and take responsibility for our actions on earth. How much easier will it be to stand in front of him, well aware of the good and bad we did. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
There are sooo many reasons why humility may be one of the most important characteristics of a godly man, but the most important reason might be the following. That is only possible if both of you can humble yourselves. A relationship can be challenging and confronting at times, however only people who are able to resist the desire to always be right and are able to acknowledge their mistakes and weaknesses can solve disputes.
If not, the relationship can turn toxic really quickly. You want the man you date to be able to apologize and put your feelings first at times. Trust should be at the foundation of every committed relationship. After it is established, you feel encouraged to open up to each other, invest in each other, and eventually commit to each other. However, broken trust is a major deal-breaker in relationships. Lying is undoubtedly the fastest way of breaking that trust. No matter how big or small the lie might be, it leaves a nasty aftertaste and makes you question every following statement.
Observe his actions and see if they align with his words. Even a tendency to use white lies can become an issue. If he repeatedly uses them to justify his actions, you should have an honest conversation about that. Thankfully, honesty is something you can spot early on in the relationship. Is he honest about his intentions for you? Does he communicate what his vision for the relationship is? If you find yourself confused and wondering about your relationship status, then chances are that he is not honest and open.
However, nobody ever explains how to communicate well. Thank God, God does! And who better to learn from than the creator of language himself. A man who is self-aware and can communicate well, will be able to voice his needs and wants without getting angry or abusive. He will not be controlled by his emotions or pride, but by love. He will know how to act in order to de-escalate potential arguments and make you feel heard. Because in order to have a successful relationship, couples need to know how to communicate with each other. Look for a man that talks to you with respect and acts reasonably even when he is agitated.
Every time somebody wronged me, I would cut them off and insist on holding a grudge, regardless of their apology.
But guess what, in a relationship, you will be wronged because neither of you is perfect. You must be willing to forgive in order to heal. After all, forgiveness comes easy if the person is filled with love. By fearing God and listening to wise counsel. This man is full of pride and blinded by his own knowledge. Honestly, I believe this one is the most important characteristic of a godly man in a relationship.
The only, I repeat only thing that will keep a man in check is if he fears God and lives his life accordingly. Knowing that God judges our behavior towards each other and sees the things we do in the dark encourages us to live a life of obedience. Trust me, a man whose desire it is to please God and not just himself or you is what you want.
All these personality traits mentioned above are great characteristics of a godly man and qualities of a godly husband. Girl, this is the main question Andy Stanley unpacks in his book. And let me tell you the first time I read it I was shocked and a little embarrassed. Thankfully, the book really goes into detail on how to become a better and more godly woman.Marry a godly man
