“For I have chosen him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice.” – Genesis 18:19
God designed men to be the leaders of their home. So why is it that today, many men are such spiritual wimps? Not spiritual men, but spiritual cowards! Men, if you’re not interested in being a real man, the kind of leader in the home that God is calling you to be, this is not a message for you. Go on being gutless wonders just like so many men out there are when it comes to spiritual leadership in the home. But if you’re interested in being a real man, realize God has called you to lead.
Jesus Christ tells us we’re to be servant leaders – not dictatorial leaders – but servant leaders, like He was with His church in Jesus’ day and is still with His church today. He gave His life for us. So, men, wake up. Our families need us. Our nation needs us to be real men – spiritual leaders in the home. And He’s not calling you to be bullies or overbearing, because, remember, you are to lead your family by allowing Christ to lead you!
