God created man from the dust of the earth, with a very important role to play in this world. We are to be husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, grandparents, and friends. However, most importantly, God has created men in His image with the tremendous responsibility of glorifying God in all that we do.
What does the Bible say about the role of man? As husbands we are to honor our wives, and be prepared to lay down our life for them... "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her" (Ephesians 5:25)
As fathers, we will be held responsible for leading our children to the Lord... "And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."(Ephesians 6:4)
As men, we must be providers... "But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." (1 Timothy 5:8)
As men, we are charged with watching over our family... "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong." (1 Corinthians 16:13)
