What is a Husband

Posted on March 20, 2020 at 3:35 PM

According to Webster’s Dictionary, husband is defined simply as “a male partner in a marriage.”


The word comes from the Old Norse word húsbóndi, “master of a house,” from hús “house” + bóndi, “occupier and tiller of the soil.” The original sense of the verb was “till or cultivate.” This shows us two concepts about husbands. First, he is the master of the house. Second, he occupies and tills or cultivates the soil. This has significant meaning when looking at the Bible definition of a husband.


The earliest reference we have according to the Bible is in Genesis 2:21-25. That text is when God made a woman from Adam’s rib. This is the first reference to husband and wife being from one flesh. Simply put, a husband is a man who is tasked with the roles of being a provider, Spiritual leader, and head of his household for his wife. He uses the example and inspiration of Jesus Christ to place the needs of his wife above his own in providing for her physical, emotional and Spiritual needs. In doing so, he glorifies God and is a living example of Jesus Christ in the home.


1 Corinthians 11:3 King James Version (KJV)


3 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.


Men I encourage you in these times, become the head of your house. Lead your family in prayer, lead your family in Bible reading, and lead them in times of worship.


I know as a husband/father when storms arise when and things that scare my wife and kids happen. They look to me for comfort and security. So in this time of uncertainty, be the head of your wife and kids just as Christ is the head of you and God is over Christ! Be their rock and their security cause Christ is yours.
