From my Bible reading today: (This is why we love to serve our Pastors the way we do!)

As I read my Bible today I was reminded in Spirit as to why it is that we as a family in our church serve  and “love” on our Pastors the way we do in the “lil” corner of God’s House that is The Rock Family Worship Center…

Hebrews 13: 17 Be responsive to your pastoral leaders. Listen to their counsel. They are alert to the condition of your lives and work under the strict supervision of God. Contribute to the joy of their leadership, not its drudgery. Why would you want to make things harder for them?

Most of us are “responsive” to and “listen” to (if we’re smart) counsel of our Pastors but how many of us are really “contributing to the joy of their leadership, not its drudgery”.

If at all possible, serve your pastors and pastoral leadership team with even more zeal for Christ.

Pray for them, do extra little things for them from time to time, smile and say hello when you see them at church or out in the community, if at all possible and if you catch one of the in a restaurant pay for their meal if you can and are led by the Spirit (all of these should be led by the Spirit..or if you just desire to be nice…the devil don’t do nice BTW), and MOST IMPORTANTLY…PRAY for them!

Pray for their inner and outer circle.  Pray for their health, pray for them and their families well-being, pray for their children, their finances, their marriages, and protection over their hearts, lives and souls as the enemy rages his attacks on their lives.  Pray for that they be strengthened for the dark days that are surely ahead.  And, pray that they always bend their ear to the Holy Spirit and God’s will even to the point of being faced with death.

If nothing else simply walk up to them and thank them for serving you as they serve the Lord…that is the reason that most of them serve anyway.
