The Godly Man’s Role
As Spiritual Leader…
A godly man desires to be the spiritual leader of his home. He is in conflict for his family as Paul was for the citizens of the Colossian church.
He desires, as Paul did, that his family would be comforted, knit together in love, understanding of his role in the home, and acknowledging of his accountability before God.
As Decision Maker…
As the leader of his home, a godly man must make decisions that affect his entire household. He does not make those decisions lightly.
It is a heavy burden that he must bare for the consequences of those decisions can bring about a good result or a disastrous one.
As Seeking God’s Guidance…
Therefore, it is of utmost importance, that the family members understand and acknowledge his role and thus pray for God’s guidance in his decisions.
The Family’s Role
The family is a beautiful picture of Christ and His Church.
As a picture of the body of Christ, the family body that prays together, is knit together, comforts one another, and upholds one another is a family that is a beautiful picture of Christ and His church.
