Bible Texts: Jn.1:1-8, Matt.5:14-16, Gen.12:1-3, Ps.24:1-2, 2Cor.5:17, Rom.12:21, 1Cor.13:4-8, Philp.4:8, Matt.6:22, Jn.3:16

You are a witness of Jesus Christ! You are an ambassador of Christ! You are the light in your home, and in the marketplace! That is the word for the husbandman reading today’s devotional teaching.

In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD was God. The same was in the beginning with God. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light but was sent to bear witness of that Light (Jn.1:1-8)

Reading from verse 8 of John chapter 1, there are two important truths to note. The first is that God sent a man, whose name was John. The second is that God sent John to bear witness of the Light, Jesus Christ so that men will believe Him. And when you read down the Bible passage, you discover that John fulfilled that assignment of a witness to the end that all people believed in the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is the lesson for you and I. God made you and I husbandmen, that is a man, husband and father (Gen.1:26-28, Gen.2:18, Gen.4:1). And in order to make us flourish, God sent us into the lives of our wife and children and in the marketplace so that we can be witnesses and ambassadors of Jesus Christ in thoughts, action and conduct (Matt.5:14-16). As Christ ambassador, you are to be merciful, loving, compassionate, forgiving, caring, respectful, faithful, righteous, holy, gracious, understanding, prayerful, helper, provider, leading with courage, hope and faith. That is your mandate.

Therefore, let you and I as husbandmen make our headship and representation worthy of Christ’s nature because that is what makes us the good and godly men, husbands and fathers.

I pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, that you shall not lose your ambassadorial heritage in Jesus name. Amen.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to represent Jesus Christ in my home in truth.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, let the life of Jesus Christ shine through me in all that I think and do.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, make a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto You.


I am made by God and sent by Him as a witness of Jesus Christ and I receive grace to represent Jesus Christ in truth in my home and in the market place because that is what makes me the good and godly husbandman, in Jesus name. Amen.
