Men of Honour

Bible Text: 2 Timothy 2:20-21 | Preacher: Pastor (Dr) Bola Adeyemo | But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work (2 Timothy 2:20-21).

Through the course of history, there were men who caught God’s attention. In the Bible, for example, we have people like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Elijah, Elisha, Cornelius etc. Simply put, the men of honour are those who demonstrate their faith in God.

Preliminary thoughts:

Every male child that is born has the set of equipment to be a worthy father
The decisions we make everyday positions us to either be a vessel of honour or dishonor
If the beginning is dishonourable, that is not the end of the story. 1 Sam 22:2; 2 Sam 23:8
There is no partiality with God. Rom 2:11
The list of men of honour is not yet completed


Who are the men of honour? The men of honour are the people who have decided to set themselves apart so that they can be useful for the institution of God. This life is a dress rehearsal for eternity and

when we are men of honour we will catch God’s attention and will be able to serve in time and eternity.

Men of honour serve over and beyond the call of duty. Men of honour are required to demonstrate the wisdom of God wherever they find themselves in life. To be a man of honour is a daily choice and men of honour are people that God can depend upon.

In this day and age, men of honour are required because God always has a need. A man of honour is able to identify God’s needs and fill it. A man of honour is diligent and he is ready to serve at any given period of time. Sometimes you are a man of honour and there is no recognition for you before men but it does not diminish your position before God. A man of honour is consistently dependable till the end.
