IT IS HONOURABLE TO BE A GODLY HUSBAND

Spread the love

Main Scriptures: Heb.13:2-4

More Scriptures: Eph.5:23, Eph.6:4, Gen.18:19

Hallelujah! We have come to the last day of the year 2020. To God alone we give all the glory. Now, if there is anything you must be grateful to God for is that He made you a living shepherd. As for me, I am happy that God made me a husband. I could not have asked for anything else. I do not wish to become anything other than a husband. And I want you to also celebrate your position as a husband, notwithstanding the many challenges and expectations you are confronted with in your quest to become the godly husbandman. But what makes you an honourable husband? What is unique about your position as a husband? What is the attraction about being a godly husband? Firstly, as a godly husband, you assume the role of a Christ in your home. How? By doing what Jesus Christ, who is the perfect example of the godly husband, would do to your wife. The Scripture says, husband love thy wife as Christ has loved the church (Eph.5:23). You can’t be a husband without a wife. So, when you are a husband, you assume the role Jesus Christ played and is still playing to the bride-church. Whatever Christ is to the church is what you should be to your wife. And every honour that follows Jesus Christ is bound to follow you. Secondly as a husband, you have the rare privilege of sowing seeds and watching the seeds bear fruits. God’s word says, fathers, nurture your children in the way of the Lord (Eph.6:4). There is no better way for you to reproduce after your kind like being a father. There is no better way to impact your children positively like raising them up in the home environment as a father. Thirdly, being a husband provides you a great opportunity to recreate the destinies of your family heritage, thereby giving them a name and fame on the earth.

A lot of husbands are going through challenging times in life-ministry, career, business, academics, finances, and in many more areas- because of the wrong foundation laid by their forefathers. But being the godly husband means you are starting a new family, hence a better platform for you to lay good and godly foundations for your wife and children. And that begins with having Jesus Christ as your Lord. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new (2Cor.5:17). Do you know that you may not have the opportunity to mount the pulpit to preach to a large crowd, but you can share with your wife and children those wonderful experiences you have? I want you to know that you are not just a statistic. You are an instrument in the hand of God to bless your wife and children (Gen.12:3). God appreciated the importance of your position as a husband, so He made you in His image and likeness and gave you a wife and family to watch over and keep (Gen.1:26, Gen.2:18). Do not trade your headship for anything. It is an honour to be the godly husband.
