By dr. bill hamon
MANHOOD - Gen. 1:26, 27 - Rom. 8:29 - Heb. 2:6, 10 - I Tim. 2:5
God makes a man before manifesting mighty ministry. Man - apart from position, message or ministry. Per-son-al-ity evaluating person not performance. Jesus - manhood 30 years; ministry 3 1/2; 10 to 1 ratio.
MINISTRY - II Cor. 6:3 - Matt. 7:15-21 - Deut. 18:20-22
No offense to ministry; I Cor. 2:4,5 - power and demonstration. By their fruits you shall know them - anointing, results. Prophecies or preaching productive: Proven, pure, positive.
MESSAGE - Eph. 4:15 - I Tim. 4:2 - Mark 16:20
Speak the truth in love; present truth, and life giving. Message balanced, scriptural, doctrinally sound and spiritually right. God confirms His Word - not person, pride or reputation.
MATURITY - Jas. 3:17 - Gal. 5:22 - I Cor. 13 - I Tim. 3:6
Attitude right; mature in human relations; heavenly wisdom. Fruit of spirit, Christ like character, dependable, steadfast. Not childish, Eph. 4:14, Heb 5:14, Biblically knowledgeable and mature; not a novice.
MARRIAGE - I Tim. 3:2, 5 - I Peter 3:1,7 - Eph. 5:22-23

METHODS - Tit. 1:16 - Rom. 1:18 - Rom. 3:7-8

MORALITY - Co. 3:5 - Eph. 5:3 - I Cor. 5:11 - Matt. 5:28
