When Jesus Christ talks about light in Matthew chapter five (5), what does it really mean and how important is it to you and I who are called to lead our sheep in the fear and admonition of the Lord? So, I want to share with every husband something the Person of the Holy Spirit stirred up in my spirit. As a husband you must have heard or read of this Scripture. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matt.5:16). Jesus equated your life with light. As the husbandman who wants to be the good and godly shepherd to your sheep and the world, you must of necessity think, act and respond like Jesus Christ would. This is because, Jesus Christ is the perfect example of every husbandman. In Eph.5:25, the Bible has this to say in that regards. Husbands, love thy wife AS CHRIST HAS LOVED THE CHURCH…… So, if you claim to be the good and godly man, husband and father, the way and manner you conduct your affairs must be as Christ would. Your actions identify you as the godly husbandman more than what you say.

As the head of your family, you are a light bearer, bearing the very life of Jesus Christ and His works for your wife, children and the world to see. And when you have His light in you, you will not struggle to reflect it for all to see. But you must first have the light for yourself and let it have entrance into your life. Just like light is clear for all to see, so should your life be. Yes, it is true that you have struggles. Yes, it is true that you are not perfect and that you fail sometimes. But you must not be discouraged and give in to the devil to remain in your fallen state. You must rise up from the ashes of defeat, dust yourself and move forward with God’s word, which is able to enhance your light. However, for you to get light, you must be a leader who is addicted to the word of God the same way a drug addict is addicted to drugs. Believing what the word of God says and doing exactly what He says build up so much light in you and consequently reflects on others. You also need to engage the twin weapon of fasting and prayers to enforce God’s light into your life. God has provided the platform for your light to shine. You must take personal responsibility to engage the demands of the light. The Scripture says of the woman with the issue of blood, if only I may but touch ……. You must stretch to saturate your life with the truth of God’s word. The light in you is the life of Christ, let it shine for your wife and children.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, fill me with Your nature and let it overflow.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, make me a godly example to my wife, children and the world.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, help me to remain in You and Your word.


I have the life of God and the Spirit of Jesus Christ in me and I think and act like the godly man, husband and father to my sheep because that is what makes me the good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
