Home Relationships DUTIES OF A HUSBAND



The word husband comes from some Anglo-Saxon words which mean house band. This implies a strip of metal (or rope) used to bind the house together. A husband therefore binds together the 1 home in terms of its organization and control.

Head of Family: Headship connotes:
(a) Authority – in bring up bringing
(b) Leadership – in providing directing and guidance
(c) Responsibility – decision-making; dont shirk it so that you can blame someone else when things backfire.
The man must rule his home spiritually, financially and socially. When Adam and Eve sinned against God and he came into the garden, He first cal ed ADAM and asked, Where are you? The man is held responsible for anything that goes wrong in the home, e.g. divorce, rebellious children, unhappy wife etc. Authority Structure: But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3. 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.

Love: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: Ephesians 5:25-29

(a) Verse 25 Give of his best to her, sacrificially.
(b) Verse 27 Present her back to himself.
(c) Verse 29 Nourish and cherish her (with the Word of God and physical things).
(a) The man is presenting the woman back to himself. It is for his own good to nourish, cherish and beautify his wife.
(b) Let her feel loved.
