Just as there are gradients to the color blue, there are gradients to the grandeur and substance of a Godly man. On a scale of 1 to 10, Jesus ranks a ten—the deepest and richest royal shade of blue, so to speak. He was the perfect man, demonstrating the heavenly hues of majesty and holiness. Jesus has set forth a pattern of manhood, and it is a standard so far beyond the average pew-sitting man of our day. So, the question is, “Are we to ignore Christ's righteous pattern or are we to expect God to work the almighty manly pattern into our manhood?” History will show the significance of the men of God of our day answering that question rightly.
