Topic: Arise, Take Up Your Responsibility [13/10/2016]
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Ephesians 5:23. Gen 18:17-9
In one of her classic book, Gloria Copeland said, "When the storm is coming into their home, her husband Kenneth Copeland stands at the door and rebukes the storm. You can't come in, he would say to the storm and everything becomes normalised. He knows that the leadership of his home is his responsibility, he can either handle it with levity or take it seriously. A Man is to champion both the spiritual and physical state of his home.
In our society today, 89% of our homes (most especially spiritual state) are championed by women. The leadership of the family from the beginning of creation has always been the responsibility of the man and the woman is to support him. In spiritual matters,most women take the lead, they set up family altar and take the children to Church while some men will be snoring on the bed. Instead of them to lift up their wives spiritually, they end up being lifted by their wives. You can't leave your responsibility to the weaker vessel - the woman, you must rise up and take charge of your responsibility. God vouch for Abraham that he can command his family after God. The same with Joshua. Jos 24:15
* Both the spiritual and physical state of your family rest upon your shoulder, your wife is a helper not the leader of your home. Do the needful, oh man!
