So I’m excited to share with you guys what George shared with me about being a man of God. If you follow him on Twitter or Instagram, you are well aware of the fact that HE GOES IN for God! I stumbled upon him in the celibacy hash-tag and the wisdom from this young man of God blew my mind. I just want to give a special thank you for being the first guy to feature on my blog and sharing your heart. You are an AMAZING example of a young man on fire for God and I appreciate you!

1. Tell me about yourself.

1. I’m a 26 year old young man. My life has been a sensual journey that abruptly and undoubtedly lead me right back to Christ. I am passionate about truth that provokes thoughts that induce curiosity that yields freedom. I am passionate about prosperity. I love achievement and I earnestly believe we all have a giant within us that needs to be awaken. I am the evolution of influence and affluence. Without God I am nothing. He has given me my identity and my purpose. Through my struggle I am able to usher in thought for others; I am here to uplift the name of Christ. He says that if I do this he’ll draw all men unto himself. It’s my faith that propels me forward. Impossibility is the only thing that intrigues me. With faith, impossible things are transmuted into abundant substance. My ultimate goal in life is to see the unveiling of the glory of God through the life of a sinner saved by grace who has subverted my own will for the perfect will of God.

2.Do you practice and promote celibacy? Why?

Yes, I practice as well as promote celibacy. I also refrain from masturbation. I will do so until I am married. The reason I made this choice is because I decided to commit to God. Commitment was a foreign concept to me when I initially began my walk with Christ so there were times that I fell, but I adamantly wanted to get it right. Just committing wasn’t enough for me though; I always need for things to challenge me logically, so God gave me this:

God- Do you love Me?

Me- Yes!

God- Do you love your mother?

Me- Of course!

God- Am I Omnipresent?

Me- Yes!

God- Is your mother omnipresent?

Me- No

God- Do you love your mother more than you love me?

Me- Certainly not!

God- Well why is that you have never had sex or maturbated in the presence of your mother, but you continually do it in my presence?

Me- ……….

This revolutionized my life! The commandment is to have no other gods before Him. What I had mistakenly done was placed my mother before God. A mistake that I would correct once and for all. To love God is to obey Him. There is no love devoid obedience.

3. What does being a man of God mean to you?

Deciding to be a man of God is the greatest decision I have ever made. To me it’s the essence of manhood. With out God, without a beginning there is no reference point. Without a reference man ultimately becomes the measure of all things. We become gods in our on right. If this is the case mankind is susquently, if not immediately reduced to pure relativism. Without God we have no definition of ourselves. He is where it begins. Once a man accepts Christ as his personal savior, then and only then does have truly have the capacity to become a man.

4. Do you believe celibacy is something that all brothers should practice?

Celibacy is certainly something brothers should practice. We establish order. If the man is out of order the home is out of order and disorder is not exclusive to the home. It is viral. Perversion is the plan of the enemy. If men don’t have an intimate relationship with God there is no true divinity within the family or community.

5.What advice would you give to young men who believe they are too flawed to come to Christ?

I would tell them they are exactly where Christ needs them to be to use them mightily! I thought the same thing, but it is the furthest thing from truth. Christ say that “if we would believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths that we would be saved.”

6.What event in your life brought you to Christ?

It was a seemingly random event that brought me to Christ. I was walking through the cafe one day at school NC A&T; my friend stopped me and asked me “Hey G, who are you living for today? God or the devil?” Of course my answer was God, but it was a lie to save face. It was like I had an encounter with the Son of man himself. That moment changed my entire perspective on things and since that day I ask myself that question on a daily basis. It still holds as much weight now as it did then.

7.What words of wisdom do you want to share with brothers in Christ regarding Celibacy & growing closer to God?

The advice I would give would be to take a look at your heart and at your true motives. Do you “love” these women for your sake or for theirs? Think of the way you would like a man to love your daughters. Think of the respect that you would like for him to honor her with. Would you be fair in demanding that respect from any man if you are not man enough to embody those exact statutes? Figure out what it is you want for your life. Start to plan for your death. Think of it as a blueprint for a house. We are God derivatives. We were not put here to be average, therefore we cannot employ average thoughts or deeds. We are called to lead. To be righteous in his sight. We are the healers of society. If we don’t know love, and God is love, then we know anything. If we know nothing our sons will know nothing, if our sons know nothing our daughters have no identity. Ergo a nameless generation. Slaves.
