Bible Texts: Rom.7:1-2, Matt.22:35-38, 2Cor.5:17, Rom.6:1, Rom.8:1, Rom.7:24-25, Ps.24:1-2, Acts 10:36, Jn.3:5-7, Philp.2:13

I welcome you to the second half of the year 2024 and I pray in the name of Jesus Christ that you shall be a thousand times better than the first half. Amen. But what is that one thing that is needful for you? It is obeying the laws, principles and instructions of Scriptures for your life as the man, husband and father.

Know ye not, brethren, for I speak to them that know the law, how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth, but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband (Rom.7:1-2)

Like every other activity of life, such as the law of gravity, the electoral law, the law of evidence and so much more, there is the husbandman law. And the Word of God in the Romans chapter 7 and verses 1 to 2 mentions it.

Now what is the law of the husbandman?

The law of the husbandman is the principles of Scriptures as contained in the Word of God which guide, direct, instruct, guard and measure the life of the husbandman to the end that he becomes the good and godly man, husband and father.

The first chapter of the law of the husbandman is solid relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Then one of them, a lawyer asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said to him, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment (Matt.22:35-38)

As the husbandman, your relationship with Jesus Christ is your first commitment and you must love Jesus Christ with all that you have-your heart, soul, mind and body. Jesus must be Lord over all in your life, and fellowship with Him is the beginning of a healthy relationship with others.

But why is this chapter the first and great law?

I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. For without me, ye can do nothing. Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit, so shall ye be my disciples (Jn.15:5,8)

All that the word of God commands you to do as you lead yourself, wife and children can only be accomplished by the help of God through His Son, Jesus Christ (Philp.2:13). So, without Jesus Christ, you cannot fulfill your mandate and bear fruits as the good and godly husbandman.

Secondly, when you have a quality and healthy relationship with Jesus Christ, you become a better person in your thought, conduct, action, responses and reaction.

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)

The love of Christ shed abroad in your heart is the firm foundation upon which all other principles of Scriptures are cultivated and nurtured.

You must have a sincere relationship with God through Jesus Christ and be sanctified and fit for the Master’s use. 


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me by the Spirit of love to love You with all my heart, mind, body, spirit and soul.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, let the power of Your love be rooted in my heart.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to bear fruits after Your likeness in my heart, conduct, action, responses and reaction.


I love the Lord God with all my heart, soul, body, mind and spirit because that is what makes me the good and godly husbandman in Jesus name. Amen.
