To understand this topic, we need to understand the husband of the church, Christ Jesus.
Jesus speaking that the Father has a life and He has given Him that life. 

John  5:26  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

As the Father has that life, He has given it also to the Son. It’s the same life. The life of the Father is transfered to the Son and we see the Father called us to that life by fellowship of His Son. 

1 Corinthians  1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Then we see that the Father has given the Son the authority to give that life to us. 

John  17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

You see that? God has given Jesus the authority to give us that life as His Church. 

We see it been witness. Record means witness. 

1 John  5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  

5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

We understand by revelation of God’s word that the man represent Christ and woman represent the church. 

1 Corinthians  11:7  FOR A MAN indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as HE IS THE IMAGE AND GLORY OF GOD: but THE WOMAN IS THE GLORY OF THE MAN.

Ephesians  5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

We see that the man represent Christ and the woman the church. Christ feed His Church with His life. As the man you need to be be full of life of God. This comes by the study of the word and God and fellowship with the word of God. Life is supposed to flow always from the husband to the wife. You represent Christ. When you look at what Christ represent to the church. That’s what you represent too. You need to stay in that fellowship with the Son to be full of life. This also comes by increasing in the knowledge of God. 

Colossians  1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and INCREASING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD;

A man is to be full of life. You as a man ought to be increasing in the knowledge of God, and as you increase in the knowledge of God, you’re increasing or gaining more life. Remember 

Matthew  4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

That’s how the husband gains life. That’s how the woman gains life. When there is flow of life in the home. It will affect the children and they bear that life also. Your home should not be void of life. Stay with the Lord. More of His life will be invoked into your human. Husband stay with the source of life. Jesus is your source of life. As you gain life from Jesus, you transmit that life to your wife and family. You nurture your wife with this life by fellowship. You’re not just to provide bread alone, provide life for your home, the life of God. God bless you.
