Being defamed, we entreat, we are made as the filth of the world and are offscouring of all things unto this day. I write not these things to shame you but as my beloved sons I warn you. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. Wherefore, I beseech you be ye followers of me (1Cor.4:13-16) KJV
A lot of the time as heads of our families, we struggle to find answers to why our flocks are not who we want them to be or where we want to be. We try so many methods yet we fail. But today, the word of God has provided the answer. I have begotten you through the gospel (the word of God). The word begotten means to bear or to bring forth. God wants you to bring forth sheep (wife and children) as good and godly seeds both in character and conduct. God wants you to raise a wife and children that will help solve the hurt of humanity and rescue the world from decadence (Matt.5:14-16). And above all, God wants you to be the reference (Gen.12:2-3). But you cannot achieve this vision without the word of God.
You must understand that it is the word of God that frames your sheep to be like Christ. And it is your practice of the word of God that creates a lasting impression in the lives of your wife and children. In Heb. 11:3 the Scripture says that the worlds were framed by the word of God. The word of God is what you need to make all the positive impacts in the lives of your flock. It is not your money. It is not the fluency of your language or your social status and lifestyles. So, explore the Bible to find the right nuggets that help you to beget your sheep.
But why is the word of God the most potent weapon you require to beget your wife and children? The answer is found in Heb.4:12. For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Heb.4:12). Therefore, engage the word of God and your sheep shall be begotten unto righteousness.
· Father, in the Name of Jesus, open my eyes to behold wondrous things out of Your word.
· Father, in the Name of Jesus, give me seeing eyes and hearing ears as I study Your word.
· Father, in the Name of Jesus, let the spirit of Your word break every barrier in the lives of my wife and children.
I engage the word of God to beget my wife and children unto righteousness because that is what makes me a good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen.
