Confessions of a Pastor

Posted Friday, November 15, 2013
"Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person..."
1 Corinthians 13:7

One of the interesting challenges of being a pastor is people thinking you're preaching AT them. Instead of recognizing that the Holy Ghost is ministering to them about a matter in their life, they assume that somehow you tailored your message to launch a personal attack against them. This despite the fact that hundreds or thousands are in the room hearing the message.

Don't fall for Satan's trick. If God is talking to you through a message receive it, even if it stings a bit. And believe enough of your Pastor to trust that they are simply saying what God wants them to say.

The Bible does teach us to Believe the Best of EVERY person. That should include your pastor. I can tell you as a Pastor that we are tired of being 'the messenger who gets shot' and would appreciate some grace from time to time.

Be blessed!
