BUILDING YOUR LIFE ON CHRIST’S FOUNDATION

Spread the love

Bible Texts: Matt.16: 16-18, Jn.10:29, Jn.10:9, Lk.18:1, Lk.10:19, 2Cor.5:17, Rom.12:1-3, Jos.1:6-8

Let me begin by telling you that as the good and godly husbandman, you are in charge to build the home, your wife and children on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Your leadership role as the head over your wife and children originates from God and your home also represents the kingdom of God on earth. And because your wife, children, sheepfold and all its components are precious in the eyes of God, satan your adversary, is working day and night to steal, kill, and destroy (Jn.10:9-11). This onslaught on the husbandman has resulted in so many shepherds not knowing what to do, living in a confused state of mind. But today, the Word of God tells us how you and I as good and godly husbandmen can build and secure our headship in the family kingdom.

And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matt.16:18). Building your position as the husbandman on the rock guarantees your security and protects you from the attacks of the wicked one. Now, what is the rock?

He is Jesus Christ, Himself. And He has provided you the materials you need to build yourself in Him. He has given His words contained in Scriptures, the Bible. As the good and godly husbandman, you need the abundance of the word of God inside of you to overcome the pressure and disappointments either from the environment and may be from your wife and children. You need full dosages of the word of God to resist and repel the arrows of the enemy shot at you with the aim of making you behave inappropriately.

For you to build on Jesus Christ, the foundation, you must spend time with the word of God. Whatever you don’t spend time for will not yield the needed harvest (Pro.4:20). You must also meditate on the word of God day and night. In Psalms chapter1 and verse 2, the Scripture says, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law doeth he meditate day and night (Ps.1:2). As you take in God’s word into your spirit man, it will help you build a strong foundation for your family kingdom.  You must understand that your position as the head of the family is spiritual and so it will take spiritual inputs to sustain it. This is why the intake of the word of God, prayer and fasting must be your lifestyle.

As the good and godly husbandman, Jesus Christ is the only foundation you can build upon. Therefore, you cannot afford to toy with your position as the godly husbandman. Husbandman is a calling. It is the most potent platform God has provided for you to lead and inspire your wife and children for good and for God.
