Church, Pastor, Ministers….

Many a times when we see this on the news, people gasp , shock and frown.A  pastor or minister failed to be a christian or a human in someway or the other.

  • First thing we ALL have to realize this. Pastors and Ministers are not God. They are just ordinary people chosen by God to perform extraordinary task on this earth.To shepherd us.
  • They undergo the most temptation and trials than all of us.
Everytime there is good, there is rejoicement, there is exaltment of the lord the enemy is burning out of jealousy. He failed. He want to fail the Chosen ones, the pastors. So he can fail us the believers. He is constantly working on it.  But we know that will NOT happen as long we wrap ourselves in God’s abundant love and protection.
As a common man(a girl), I underwent some issues when I prayed for others. I learnt thru my experience, it is difficult. Now I know.
Imagine the trouble and tribulation, a Church would undergo for its assembly. Next time, such thing happens or you see something on the news PRAY…Pray for your church, pastors and all the support staff. They need a whole a lot of it.

Once in a while, extend and express your love and affection for them.
Last weekend when I came out of the church, there was no one in my side of the parking lot. I saw my Pastor and the junior pastor coming out and going towards their car. I rolled the windows down and yelled…Yes…I yelled...I called out 
“Pastor,…Pastor We love you so much”.
He came to me and held my hand on the car door and said “Oh! Thank You. That’s sweet of you”
I know I didn’t think thru that. But I really want to share what I was feeling inside. What a blessing he is to us. How he help us learn the Lord's word. I want to thank him more than my tithe and my keen listening. Something extra.
My friends, you need not have to be crazy like me. :-)

But I think it is VERY IMPORTANT to pray for our church, Pastor, Leaders and nation. Protect them in the blood of Christ. We are all one big family. Every part of it should function well for harmony.
James 5:16
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

1 Tim 2:1-3
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior
Pray without ceasing!
