Be a King Over Your Domain


Ephesians 5:22-26, NKJV; 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, TLB


4 Characteristics / Qualities of a godly man.

  • He is under the leadership of Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:23)
    • You know he is because of his actions, words, deeds, and money—He is a practicing Christian. (2 Corinthians 6:14, NKJV, GW)
    • If you want to have a godly marriage that will last, the best way is before you ever get into a relationship, determine you’re not going to date anyone who is not a practicing-profession Christian. (2 Corinthians 6:14, NKJV, GW)
  • He is your savior.
    • Savior—Deliver, Protector, One who makes you feel safe—Provider.
    • If he can’t provide you better hide.
    • He is to be your savior—honor kind of man, if you can’t respect him –you won’t be happy with him.
  • He is kind. (Ephesians 4:32, NKJV; Proverbs 21:9, GW)
    • Kind—Shows love and affection—Manner and Morals, Gracious and Generous, Easy and Affectionate.
    • Manner and morals: Men we need to show our wives good manners, that’s more than opening the doors for her, it means be clean as well. Morals – she does not need to be worried about where you are going, who you are going with, and what you are doing.
    • Gracious and Generous: We always want their needs met before ours—learn how to deny yourself graciously, she needs to know that you don’t mind putting her first.
    • Easy and Affectionate: Yoked together—she can come to you and find rest—Helps release each other’s burdens—it is a picture of submission, you learn to lean on him and he helps you find rest. (Matthew 11:28-30, NKJV)


God’s Perfect Plan for Couples. (Ephesians 5:27-33, NKJV)

  • Just like the church is subject under Christ’ protection, provisions, and guidance—wives you are to be under your husband’s protection, provision, and guidance.
  • God commands us to love our wives because He knows we will struggle with simply wanting our way instead of the best way.
  • Men sanctify her; have times set apart just for her.
  • God wants marriages to be a picture of what our relationship with Him looks like.
  • Men are to love his wife as himself—Wives are to respect her husband.
  • Women grow and win your husbands not by what you say, but what you don’t say and how you live. (1 Peter 3:1, NKJV)
