How To Build A Christian Home For God..

It took a woman to lose the world to Satan - Eve.
To undo that damage, and reclaim the world from Satan, God needed another woman - Mary.
Both cases show the level of tremendous power and resources that are inherent in WOMANHOOD.
The power to create.
The power to destroy.
The deployment of that power depends on WHOM the woman listens to. WHOM she submits to – God or Satan?

Eve wanted SOMETHING APART FROM GOD. So, she listened to Satan’s bogus promises, culminating in this, “… your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God….” (Gen 3:5)
On the other hand, Mary wanted NOTHING APART FROM GOD. So, she submitted to God, “… let it be to me according to your word….” (Luke 1:38)
Please think about that difference for a second….
One attitude ‘killed’ the world.
One attitude ‘saved’ the world.
Who says women do not have power?!
In all these, the job of the man is to LOVINGLY lead the woman to become all that God ordained her to be.

The keyword is LOVE.
Love requires wisdom. Lots and lots of wisdom!
Sadly, MOST men lack this wisdom. The wisdom to ‘conquer’ – not through strength. But through wisdom.
Through weakness. Through THE CROSS.
No wonder the Bible instructs husbands to live with their wives according to knowledge/understanding (1 Pet 3:7).

To live with a woman in the way the Bible prescribes, a man needs the wisdom of God.
For God ALONE understands the mystery that He packaged in a woman.
THE MYSTERY that turns a tiny sperm into a baby.
THE MYSTERY that turns a house into a home. (Think about this: the wife is indeed the WEAKER vessel, yet God designates her as the BUILDER of the home - Proverbs 14:1, Ruth 4:11).
To understand a mystery, wisdom is required. 
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally…. (James 1:5)
Today, MOST men are too proud to bow before God in humility and ask for the wisdom to lead their homes for Him!

That’s why/how Satan creeps into many homes/societies and destroys them wonderfully.
Because a man’s EGO may often hinder him from seeking wisdom from God on this particular subject.
Such men are dangerous! This is why God does not want such men to lead His people in Ecclesia. “For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?” (1 Timothy 3:5)

Oh, there’s another commandment from God to men:
“Husbands, love your wives, and BE NOT BITTER AGAINST THEM.” (Colossians 3:19)
Bitterness will NOT solve any problem – wisdom is the key. And that wisdom comes from God ALONE.

Again, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God …. (James 1:5)
For, indeed, a woman is NOT a strange creature.
She was made for the man (1 Cor 11:9); made from the man (Genesis 2:22).
Thus, she’s an integral part of him!
No wonder the Bible says this in Ephesians 5:28, “So ought men to love their wives as their bodies. He that loves his missis treasures himself.”

All this is a part of the wisdom of God. For He created this earth with wisdom and sustains it till date with the same wisdom (Proverbs 3:19-20). “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding”. (Proverbs 3:13)
To rule a home successfully for God, a man NEEDS this wisdom from Him!
When this fails, that old serpent is just around the corner; waiting to slither in and destroy the home wonderfully.

These are days that require MEN TO ARISE. That is, men that are MEN indeed!
Men that understand that it takes LOVE to ‘conquer’.
This is why Jesus came to the world in LOVE – not in the awesomeness of the strength with which He created the world (Colossians 1:16). Just simple LOVE.
Love. That is the key!
Husbands, please find that key. And use it every single day. For God.
“In the same way, husbands should love their wives as their bodies. He who values his wife cares for himself.” (Ephesians 5:28) 

Thanks for reading, God bless you.
