By the grace of God, I would like to share with every husband the nature and personality of Jesus Christ, Who is the perfect example of how husbands are to behave. Jesus Christ is described as the Bridegroom of the Church, just the same way you are the groom to your wife. In Ephesians 5:23, the Scripture says that the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, and he is the saviour of the body. Now the coming of Jesus Christ brought joy to the world. That’s what you are ordained for-to bring joy into the lives of your wife and children. God sent you to your flocks as agent of joy and not sorrow. You are not an instrument of unrighteousness but of good works. You are not ordained by God to lead to lead your family to destruction. All you are and all you will ever be must be to the blessings of your wife and children. Today, the husband, Jesus Christ, is being celebrated all around the world. Are members of your family celebrating you in their lives? Do they see you as a plus or a good riddance to bad rubbish? Can your wife and children be proud to tell others about you? However, for you to be like Jesus, you must decide in your heart to make Him your example. In Heb.12:1-3, the Scripture says, looking unto Jesus Christ, the Authour and Finisher of our faith. No mentor will force himself on a prospective mentee. It is the willingness of the mentee to accept the mentor that gives value to the relationship. Also, you must do the works of Jesus Christ. Jesus speaking said that by their fruits, you shall know them. As the head of your family, you are fruit bearing tree. It is not enough for you to talk about Jesus Christ. It is much more important for you to live out His life through in the direction of your wife and children. You are their epistle. Your life must speak louder than your voice. And as you engage in these godly steps toward becoming a good and godly husband, you are leaving behind a lasting legacy for your wife and children. You are also going to enjoy sweet fellowship with the Person and Power of the Holy Spirit.
· Father, by Your Spirit, teach me how to be a responsible groom to my wife
· Father, empower me to become a godly mentor to my flocks
· Father, let my fruits be profitable to my wife and children.
I have the mind of Christ and I will behave like Christ would to my wife and children in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
