Bible Texts: Jn.10:37-38, 1Tim.5:8, Jas.2:14-18, Col.3:19, 2Tim.3:5-7, Eph.6:4, 2Tim.2:6, Deut.6:7-8, Ps.23:1, Jn.10:10, Acts.10:32-35, Dan.1:8, Deut.28:1.

Taking your rightful place as the good and godly husbandman demands that you produce good and godly works as the man, husband and father (Jas.2:14-18). And it is the perfect will of God for you.

If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the Father is in me and I in Him (Jn.10:37-38)

The Scripture speaks of the works that Jesus Christ did, which the people can see and testify of. Though some of the people did not believe in Jesus Christ, nevertheless they did not doubt the good works that He did. He raised the dead, healed the sick, made the lame to walk, made the blind to see, forgive those who fell into sin, fed the people, taught them, provided inspiration and direction to those who are lost. Jesus’ works are good and godly before the people.

As the husbandman, you must do good and godly works. If you say you are the good and godly man, husband and father, then it must show in your works. It must show in your speech, conduct, relationships, actions and responses. Just like Jesus Christ who had proofs of good works while He walked on earth, you must demonstrate good works because you have the nature of Christ in you.

Ye are the salt of the earth……Ye are the light of the world…..Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matt.5:14-16)

But what does it take for me to do good works?

Firstly, you must be born again. This means that you must have a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ (Jn.3:7, 2Cor.5:17). Secondly, you must feed on the word of God as necessary food for the development of your inner man (Jn.5:39, Jn.8:32, 2Tim.2:15).The more you give attention to the study and meditation of the word of God, the more you grow in the knowledge of God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit (Ezk.2:2). Thirdly, you must engage the weapon of prayer and fasting for empowerment to do good works (Mk.9:29, Jn.15:5, Gal.4:19, Philp.2:13).Finally, you must take steps to do good and godly works by obeying all the commandments of Scriptures as they relate to what God commands for you as the man, husband and father (Dan.1:8, Deut.28:1, Jas.2:14-18).

God wants to be glorified in your life. He has chosen you to be His ambassador on earth, beginning in your home and market place. The proof of your stewardship as the good and godly man, husband and father is your good and godly works.

Glory be to Jesus Christ!
