Husbands Fully Serve as The Lion & The Lamb

By Tyland Geer

In order to be the best husband, father, and leader of your household, you must intimately commune with Father (intimate relationship), walking in the Spirit as Jesus did (being led), and discern and orchestrate the principles of being the Lion and the Lamb.

In order to be the Lion, he provides, guards his heart along with those around him. He will die for his family as Christ died for the church. He engages in spiritual warfare with the Word of Christ and not from a place of broken emotions. He is the night watchman. He wears the Word of the Law in his character yet serves with grace. He is a servant leader. 

When Jesus counseled James and John about being great and being seated on Jesus’s left and right hand of glory, he said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served by to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:42-45 NLT). The man of God relishes the notion of the upside-down pyramid. He knows and realizes that God is a God of order, and not confusion. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11, KJV).

As the Lamb he leads with grace and knows that the last shall be first, and the first shall be last. This is where casting down the spirit of pride come into play. He esteems others higher than himself; He grows others into their godly potential (Philippians 2:3-4). (“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force him to drink”). The reflection of his servanthood reveals his relationship with Christ. His wife then rules and reigns alongside him while they instruct their children in the way of the Lord. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, KJV). 

The first, and most important, ministry the Lord gives us starts within the home: God first, wife, children, career, ministries, rejuvenation, finances. These principles are multifaceted indeed. As our Creator is creative, we are to create and cultivate within the purview of our home. The things that uniquely makes us who we are details who we are in Him.
