Responsibility is a state whereby a person is committed, accountable, or responsible for his/her action. This encompasses all our activities here on Earth and in our heavenly race in which Paradise is our Target.

Genesis 3:12 – “And the man said, the woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat”. The personality who ought to shoulder the responsibility of all what happened at the garden of Eden is Adam.


Responsibility cannot be excused by ignorance and unbelief.

  1. You cannot run away from your responsibilities.
  2. Position.
  3. Life without a responsibility is a failure.



In the ideal world ignorance is not an excuse in the law court. That is God created mankind. He packages the world with an unlimited level of awareness. Christianity has spread to the uttermost part of the world as in teaching the world of miracles according to the word of Joshua; he said me and my family we will serve the living God. Choose ye this day whom shall thou serve the statement was made when people lives are dominated and motivated by idolatry ideology or principles of serving small Gods. Joshua stood his ground.

Case study:

Joshua 24:15 – “And if it seems evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Daniel in the den of a lion stood his ground in serving God and did not excuse himself from his belief.

Daniel 6:16 – “Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.

Daniel 6:17 – And a stone angel was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning.

Daniel 6:18 – Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep went from him.

Daniel 6:19 – Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste unto the den of lions.

Daniel 6:20 – And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

Daniel 6:21 – Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live forever.

Daniel 6:22 – My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocence was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

As a Christian if you leave your challenges for others or allow the power of the world to control your life, you will disappoint yourself in the Christian society then you become a failure in your own generation.  Is the generation yet unborn will ask Mummy, Daddy how did you manage your challenges?

In the Exodus, Israelites moved from Egypt, towards Jordan, after the Lord has separated Jordan on their behalf. It was recorded that they place 12 Stones according to the tribe of Israel so that when the generation yet unborn ask them, they will be able to tell them how God brought them out of Jordan on dry ground.

Joshua 4:1-2 – “And it came to pass when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,  Take you, twelve men, out of the people, out of every tribe a man”.


If you run away because of your present situation, when you check out of the country as an Andrew of your generation, you are still going to meet what makes you run away where ever you go. Hence it is better to pray in most cases and follow the direction of God in order to allow the challenges to run away from you as they run away in the days of Israelites.

Psalms 114:1 – “When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language” In most cases, especially in a hopeless situation when poverty, wickedness, failure, stagnancy, suddenly crept to a family, there is the possibility that the woman may run away or turn the husband to social nuisance there is every tendency out of frustration for the man to run away from his responsibility which is ungodly. In a situation whereby the father can no longer control the family, the family will tear apart.

Case Study:

Prophet Eli and God:

Isaiah 3:11-19 – “Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

Isaiah 3:12 – As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

Isaiah 3:13 – The Lord standeth up to plead and standeth to judge the people.

Isaiah 3:14 – The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

Isaiah 3:15 – What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Isaiah 3:16 – Moreover the LORD saith, because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet.

Isaiah 3:17 – Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.

Isaiah 3:18 – In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their calls, and their round tires like the moon.

Isaiah 3:19 – The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers”


In the present global community, some parents become enemy of God through their children especially when the parents are average or Rich even in poor homes they over pamper their children they will not allow, Nnena, Omolabake to take any position of Responsibility both in the kitchen and at home. Its either the parents do it themselves or employ the service of house boy or girl. Without fear of contradiction such children become spoilt. Any little challenges in life they will not be able to stand the test of time they go into robbery, drugs, occultism in schools until the challenges swallow them.

Some gave multinational companies yet their children are not working but spent money they will not allow their children to go outside to work to demonstrate their God-given potentials. When God told David to choose his son Solomon to replace him on the throne and to built God’s house. David did not hesitate or complain before he anointed him king over Israel through the word of prophecy.

Case Study:

Solomon and David: 1 Chronicle 22:6 & 7

1 Chronicle 22:6 – “Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build a house for the LORD God of Israel.

1 Chronicle 22:7 – And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build a house unto the name of the LORD my God:   But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars”


In the school of thought, it is only believed that your position i.e the position you head in the real-life application may determine the yardstick to measure your level of responsibilities.  your present situation nor circumstances surrounding you times may determine or limit your level of Responsibilities but that should not be a barrier all that you need to do is to cast away the spirit of inferiority complex believe that God created you for a purpose. Man is created, sent to this world in order to make that which would be meaningful by tapping the untapped resources.

Genesis 1:26 – “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and overall the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Even in the house of God as in practical Christianity your position, the seat you occupy in the house of God make you more committed to the things of the spirit. That is, the work of God, Responsible man and woman will surrender their totality to the service of humanity in the house of God. It makes them more responsible. A man that comes to this world without a position of Responsibility in his family, in his background that has no office the secular work of life is a born failure.

Case Study:

Some women are higher devoted in the days of Jesus they carry their cross and follow Jesus after their deliverance and they were serving under the Ministry of our Jesus Christ. The Bible recorded that they were their substance in the work of God.

Luke 8:1 – “And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him”. The parent of the irresponsibility children can make their children wards more responsible by giving them a position of responsibility.

The only way out to seeks the face of God through prayers brings them close to yourself make them realised the reason to lead a meaningful life. Apportion unto them duties within and outside the family circle.
