WHO IS A GODLY HUSBAND (2)

if any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre. But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate, holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. Yesterday, the Person of the Holy Spirit taught us what it takes to be a godly husband. Today let us conclude on it. A godly husband does not give himself to drinking alcohol. If the Word of God says that you must not give yourself to alcohol, it is uncontestable. It is ungodly for you to be drinking beer, alcoholic wine either at the bar, at home or in any place. A godly husband does not fight either physically or emotionally. There are husbands who have never beaten their wives physically but have done worse emotionally

WHO IS A GODLY HUSBAND (1)

Just when I concluded yesterday’s devotional with my helper and teacher, the Holy Spirit, the topic for today was dropped in my spirit by the Holy Ghost. Who is a Godly husband? As simple as this question appears, many husbands do noteven know who they are. Some husbands do not know the demands of a godly leader. And this ignorance has been responsible for the high incidences of marriage and relationship breakdown between husbands and their wives and children. This unhealthy relationship between the husband and his wife and children is not the will of
God for the position of the husbandhood.

HUSBANDS, PREACH THE KINGDOM

Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. Mk.1:14. As the head of the family, it is important for you to appreciate the place of the kingdom of God in your family.Many husbands, who are in ministry or in one form of service in the kingdom of God, are not preaching the kingdom of God. Instead, they are preaching their personality, wealth, fame and fortune.

MALAYSIAN FLIGHT MH370

The topic today was inspired by the Holy Spirit. And He wants every husband to learn a lesson from it. The Malaysian airline flight MH370 took off from Malaysia to arrive at Beijing, China. It had on board over 200 passengers including cabin crew members. Few hours after take-off, it went missing from the radar. For several days all the machinery to look for the missing plane was deployed by countries in and around Malaysia. Finally, it was discovered that it crashed into the Indian Ocean, with no survivor in sight. The reasons as to

HUSBANDS, DON’T SEND THEM AWAY

Prophecy: there is a husband reading this devotional today, and you have been told to send your wife and children away. Infact, you have been advised by your parents and relations to send your wife and children away to the village. There is another husband who has been asked to send his children away because of the new wife that is coming in. There is yet another husband who has been told to send his wife away because she has not been able to give birth. The Holy Spirit is saying, it is true that the pressure on you is tremendous.

From Without And Within

If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. Mk.7:15-16. This is the main text of our devotional today. The Scriptures say that it is what you do to your wife and children that defines your fitness or otherwise, and not what you think. Now let me share with you an interesting story that will help you understand what Jesus was saying. This husband had been very helpful to his flock, helping them in areas where they needed help and serving them as Jesus Christ served the world. On this fateful day, he was on his way to fetch water for the family as he had always done because of the water situation in the area where they lived. On his way, he met another husband who asked him where he was going. He joyfully responded that he was going to get water for the family. And his fellow husband remarked in such an uncomplimentary manner about the fact that he wanted to help his family. His friend concluded that he cannot do that for
his wife. This statement made by his friend changed the entire atmosphere at home. He returned home angry and began to react unhusbandly to the extent that the wife noticed his change of attitude. Afterall, when he volunteered to fetch water for his family, having considered that his wife was nursing a baby, he was looking happy. Why the sudden change? Now, it was not what entered him that defiled him. It was what came out of him that defiled him. As the head of the family, your heart is like a toll gate with all kinds of ideas, information and suggestion seeking to have its way.

HE BEGAN TO TEACH THEM ALL (2)

A lot of husbands have outstanding knowledge about respect, and all other human psychology and human relations. But in practice, they are a bunch of failure. They know so much but have not practiced what they know. Now that you know that you must first be taught before you can teach your wife and children, how do I make myself teachable? First, you must be prepared and willing to learn. Secondly, you must study whether formally or informally.

HE BEGAN TO TEACH THEM ALL (1)

when he came out saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd, and he began to teach them many things Mk.6:34. As the head of the family, your wife and children may need healing not of physical ailment or sickness, but of emotional sickness, which includes fear, intimidation, bullying, and phobia. Whatever is lacking in the lives of your wife and children, it is your responsibility to guide them. But how do you guide or teach them? You do this by example. This means you set the examples for them to follow. For instance, your wife may be intimidated by fear of failure or death or even depression. You can teach her by sharing with her your example of how you overcame your own
