1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Like a Man

Man is an adult male human, a husband or a lover and is one possessing in high degree the qualities considered distinctive of manhood.

A man is considered mighty and strong and is willing to fight and stand for the principle he knows right and justifiable. A woman with this same character can also be called a man.

You may know anyone, may be more than one, who is not possessing the character and qualities of a man but the Scripture did mentioned many men.
Jer 51:30 The mighty men of Babylon have forborn to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became as women: they have burned her dwellingplaces; her bars are broken.
Many Pastors, Ministers and Priests of today remain in their holds. They became as woman, desiring to be teachers of the law, though they have no knowledge of what they say or of the statements which they make so certainly.

Job 38:10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,

Job 38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

Job 38:12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

Job 38:14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

Job 38:15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.

Job 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?

To cut the long verses short, in the presence of the Lord, we must remain standing our ground. Ever ready to answer anyone about their faith in Him. Go out of your fortress, mansions or churches. And after doing so, being a man is to accept that still we are unworthy in the presence of the Lord.
Lk 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
 For everything that we have comes from above.
1 Cor 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?
