The Man of God Is a Man on the Run

“A man of God is a lifelong fugitive, fleeing those things that would destroy him and his ministry…. A man of God is known not only by what he runs from, but also by what he runs toward.  Behind are the sins which could destroy him; ahead lie the virtues that make his ministry powerful.  As long as we live on this earth, the man of God can never stop running.  If he stops fleeing evil, it will catch him; and if he stops pursuing righteousness, it will elude him.  His entire life and ministry is one of flight from what is wrong and pursuit of what is right.”

John MacArthur (“The Man of God and Expository Preaching” in Preaching: How to Preach Biblically, pgs. 64, 65-66)
