         The Measure of a Man
A. Measured by What He Flees From
    1 Corinthians 6:18
18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man

    does is outside the body, but he who
    commits sexual immorality sins against his
    own body.
    1 Corinthians 10:14
    14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
           The Measure of a Man
1   Timothy 6:11
     11 But you, man of God, flee from all this,

     (covetousness, and the love of money)

2 Timothy 2:22
22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue

   righteousness, faith, love, peace with those
   who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
1 Timothy 6:6-10
6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7

   For we brought nothing into this world, and it is
   certain[c] we can carry nothing out. 8 And having
   food and clothing, with these we shall be
   content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into
   temptation and a snare, and into many foolish
   and harmful lusts which drown men in
   destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of
   money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which
   some have strayed from the faith in their
   greediness, and pierced themselves through with
   many sorrows.
• Colossians 3:5; 5 Put to death, therefore,
  whatever belongs to your earthly nature:
  sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires
  and greed, which is idolatry.

• Ephesians 5:55 For this you know,[a] that no
  fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man,
  who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the
  kingdom of Christ and God

         The Measure of a Man
A. Measured by What He Flees From
B. Measured by What He Follows After
C. Measured by What He Fights For
  12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold

  of the eternal life to which you were called
  when you made your good confession in the
  presence of many witnesses.
• 1 Timothy 1:18 KJV 18 Timothy, my son, I am
  giving you this command in keeping with the
  prophecies once made about you, so that by
  recalling them you may fight the battle well,;

• Zechariah 10:5 KJV 5 they shall be like mighty
  men, who tread down their enemies In the
  mire of the streets in the battle. They shall
  fight because the LORD is with them, And the
  riders on horses shall be put to shame.
• 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 3 For though we live in the world, we
  do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight
  with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary,
  they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We
  demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself
  up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive
  every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Ephesians 6:10-13 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his
  mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you
  can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our
  struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
  rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this
  dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the
  heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of
  God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able
  to stand your ground, and after you have done everything,
  to stand.
