The Role Of The Man In Marriage

The Role Of The Man In Marriage

In as much as God is interested in a man and his wife, God expect leadership from the man. Men have the responsibility to provide a godly leadership for the home. The man is the priest for his home, and he must be spiritually intact always in order to forestall the impending calamity the enemy wants to bring on the home.

It is very unfortunate that most men have lost these positions of leadership and priesthood due to societal pressure and spiritual lukewarmness. This has given the enemy an edge over several homes today. This failure has also cost the church a lot.

Scriptures talks about the repercussion of adultery and lustful desires especially to the men:

“If my heart has been seduced by a woman, or if I have lusted for my neighbor’s wife, then let my wife serve another man; let other men sleep with her” (Job 31:9-10 ESV).

Whatever a man sows he reaps . As a married man, if you go about sleeping around with other women or ladies, remember you also have a wife, daughter or even sisters that your negative actions might impact on.

“He that commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it destroys himself” (Prov. 6:32, ESV).

Several marriages are sunk under the sea of adultery because the couple have opened up their home for the enemy to dwell and this in turn has affected the children. When the man and his wife fail in their marital responsibilities to each other, it creates a wrong atmosphere for the children too.

A wife must learn to constantly pray for her husband. Couples must see that they satisfy each other’s jeru trip needs and play their roles as commanded in the word of God.

The husband must understand the role God has given him as the head over his home to protect, provide, and nurture every member of his household in the way of the Lord.

Whatever a man brings into or allows in his marriage, determines what his home will become.

Leadership in marriage is not about the man just leading but him being led of God and of His spirit first. This is because a man that is not led by the spirit of God will definitely compromise the standard of God for marriage

The man is meant to be a cover for his home. Marriage is leadership for the man both spiritually and otherwise. But, it’s so unfortunate that several homes are without covers because the man has lost his position.

May our husbands’ not loose their relevance and positioning.
