Main Scriptures: Mark 4: 33-35
More Scriptures: Matt.13:34, Jn.16:12, Lk.8:22
But without a parable spake he not unto them, and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, LET US PASS OVER UNTO THE OTHER SIDE. Mk.4:33-35. After Jesus had preached with great signs and wonders following, and when everyone taught that they had arrived, He ruffled their nest. He said, “let’s pass over to the other side”. I know that you will be wandering how this Scripture relates to the role of husbands. Just wait and read. By the grace of God, the Holy Spirit wants to communicate something to every husband. To pass to the other side with your wife and children is to change your relationship methods and techniques. It means to be creative. It is a time to reappraise your life as the spiritual head of the family. A lot of the times as the spiritual authority in your home, you come to a point in your life when you unconsciously take your wife and children for granted- a time when you get so used to them that you do not accord them their due respect and honour. You must seek a better and more improved relationship with your flocks. It does not matter what you may have achieved with your wife, there is still a lot to do. There is no place called there for you as a husband. The day you think you are there, that is when satan will show up. Have you wondered why there are divorce cases of marriages that are well over 15 years old? There is a popular man of God, who did not pass over to the other side. He assumed that he was there- he took his wife for granted and ignored those traps of the devil which suggests to most husbands that there is a place called there. Sadly, the wife had it full and opted out of the relationship after nearly 30 years of marriage. But thank God for His intervention. They have both reconciled and perhaps enjoying another honey moon. Never take your wife and children for granted. Be creative.
· Father, deliver me from a failing heart. Make me strong in You always and in all things
· Father, break the power and spirit of fear working secretly in my life
· Father, by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ, give me another heart, a creative heart
I have found a new and better way of serving my flocks because I want to be a good and godly husband to my wife and children in Jesus name. Amen.
