God’s will for you and me as heads of our families is to be like Him in all things and for all things. And if you want to be useful to your wife, children and the world, you must decide to live a godly life. Godliness is what invites the power, person and presence of God into your home and that is what will dispel every spirit of disobedience from having a field day in the lives of your flock. It is through a godly life that you can gain access into the wisdom of God that will make you reign in your family kingdom. In Gen.1:26, God created the husband, Adam with the principal aim of making him a god on earth. God gave an instruction to him to dress and keep. God has commanded you to become a godly husband. Therefore, you are created to occupy a godly office. In our scripture reading today, God made the first husband in His image and likeness so that the husband, Adam can behave like God Himself.
You have the genes of godliness in you. All you need to do is to activate the gene for effective performance as a husband. Remember that the first husband was godly as long as he obeyed the instructions of God. Remember that God created him and gave a clear instruction as to what to do and what not to do. So, he was a free moral agent. Unfortunately, he disobeyed God and lost his family and glory as a husband. So, the first foundation that you must build towards becoming a Godly husband is the foundation of new birth, which is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Saviour. A relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest foundation that sets you on the path of glory, honour and dignity. No other relationship outside Jesus can set you on high. As long as the first husband maintained a relationship with God, he did not lose his glory. But as soon as he severed the relationship, he lost everything. Nothing will keep your family heritage intact like having and maintaining a truthful and sincere relation with the Groom, Jesus.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, destroy every wrong foundation that I have laid by error that is affecting my life negatively.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, bring to naught every satanic root that is making me not to live a godly life as a husband to my wife, children and relations.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, baptize me with the Spirit of holiness
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, I will live a holy life because I am longing to be a good and godly husband to my wife and children in Jesus Name. Amen.
