Holy Spirit, guide me to change into a true man of God.

How do you compare to the qualifications to be an overseer or a deacon in 1 Timothy 3?

Are you: above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money, good manager of your household, well thought of by outsiders, dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain, not a slanderer, but faithful in all things. -Timothy 3:1-13

Quite a list. There is no other list like it in the Bible. I have always seen it as a goal of my life. Not a goal that I will achieve, but I pray that I will continue walking the path and process of becoming more like Jesus as the Holy Spirit guides me.
