WHO ARE YOU TO YOUR PASTOR?

“Then God who cheers those who are discouraged refreshed us by the arrival of Titus.” 

2 Corinthians 7:6 (TLB)

 
There are some people who don’t make it their priority to be a blessing. And don’t even think they have to make it their priority to support their Leaders or Pastors (Shepherds) in the Church.
 
There are people who are dedicated and committed to their “bosses” or employers and even their office supervisors because they esteem their job.
Our participation in the Church will bring us to the fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose.
Your Kingdom relevance is first measured by your relevance in your Local Church.
 
The Holy Spirit will first share the burden of God’s vision and assignment for your Local Church with your Pastor or Shepherd. In the same way, when the adversary wants to attack the vision of the ministry he will first attack your Pastor or Shepherd.
 
If there should be any discouragement, pain, burden, attacks, persecutions, and threats; your Pastor is the first to take the shots.
Leading and raising the saints could be burdensome.
There are a lot of Pastors who are daily overwhelmed by the task of pastoral care.
 
While some members refuse to be consistent in adhering to instructions and practicing the word. Others are busily seeking their interests. Some are also holding grudges and creating conflicts with lies within the Church. 
 
Pastors don’t only deal with the spiritual and numerical growth of the Church. They are also dealing with external confrontations and distractions. Handling every single individual member of the Church with their challenges and also ensuring each of them experiences their victories in Christ.
 
These things don’t just happen weekly or monthly. These are things he is bearing up every day.
What is your role in all these?
Are you the one that makes ministry easy? Or you are the one that adds to the “pressure”. This is not to say you don’t have to share challenges with your shepherd.
 
However, what difference are you making in your Pastor’s life?
 
Are you the reason he is encouraged and joyful or you are the reason he has more load of tasks?
 
Or are you making his efforts and labor worthless?
 
Are his visitations, counseling, and prayers for you becoming a waste?
 
He invests all this time and effort and then you just decide to leave the ministry not for any divine reason?
 
BE LIKE TITUS!
 
“For even when we arrived in Macedonia our bodies had no rest, but we were oppressed at every turn—conflicts and disputes without, fears and dread within. But God, who comforts and encourages the depressed and the disquieted, comforted us by the arrival of Titus.” 2 Corinthians 7:5-6 (TLB)
Your presence and participation in the Church should be an encouragement to your Pastor.
You have to decide to be a burden bearer and supply of the Lord’s encouragement to your setman. 
 
Choose to make ministry smooth for your Man of God.
 
Shalom!
DIG DEEPER
(1 Corinthians 16:17; 2 Corinthians 7:13; 1 Thessalonians 3:2)
 
WE PRAY
That through the grace of God we will be God’s supply of encouragement to our pastor.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Day 207:
Psalms 112-114
Luke 13-14
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I am a burden bearer.
– I am a son of consolation.
– I refuse to make it difficult for my Pastor to lead me.
– I choose to be the Lord’s supply of encouragement to my Pastor.
– I give heed to every instruction given by my man of God.
 
OH Hallelujah, GLORY TO GOD!!!
