An Approved Workman of God
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJB) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
An approved workman of God does not have anything to hid from his fellow man. He is loud, proud, and graceful in professing things of God. This colorful statement does not mean he is unruly or appears to be out of control.
It means that a man of God cannot possibly hide his desire to serve God. It spiritually colors his entire identity.
A genuine man of God who loves God and is intimately familiar with His Word cannot possibly contain himself, he is not ashamed of things of God, nor does he choose to sit quietly with a feigned interest in the things of God. A man of God is sure about God’s Truth, His Word, and agrees with God’s viewpoint about sin and His estimation of mankind.
A man of God can rightly divide the truths of His Word and stand strong and spiritually tall on his spiritual position inside a personal relationship with Christ. A godly man’s fruit production always serves to bring honor and glory to God.
