A Faithful Pastor
As I read the Culture Connection, what stood out to me was we need a faithful people. The pastor may only work a few hours a week, but we all must be on the job twenty-four seven. Faithful people will come to sunday school, church and bible study, and for us that's approximately four hours a week. Faithful people will be on time and prepared for the teaching, preaching, and hearing of God's word. Faithful people will not wait for a crowd to show up, or wait for someone else to usher in the Holy Ghost. A faithful person will come with the spirit already burning inside of them no matter how few in number. I feel like a lot of time we miss the blessings of God trying to wait on unfaithful people. We say all the time, "I'll go if I have to go by myself". But do we really mean it? I have personally seen and experienced the great moving of the Holy Ghost with only two people, because we were on one accord. We expect our pastors to be faithful, on time, and available any time of the day or night. What would the church be like if the pastor was like the unfaithful members? There would be no church. We need to stop focusing on the pastor and get ourselves in line with the word. If we have an unfaithful pastor, he would have to get on board. Don't expect the pastor to do it all, because when it comes down to it, we have to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).
