WALKING IN THE PASTOR’S SHOES:

II TIMOTHY 4:2

AS I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THE JOB OF EVANGELSIT THAT GOD HAS CALLED ME INTO.

EVANGELIST THEY ARE A GIFT TO THE CHURCH!

THEY ARE TO BE A SOULWINNERS & TEACH THE CHURCH TO BE SOULWINNERS!

WE ARE TO PREACH AGAINST SIN!

MAKE THE DEVIL MAD & THUS GET HIM TO HATE YOU!

HOPEFULLY STIR THE CHURCH TO WAKE UP!

HELP THE PASTOR!

AS I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS!

HOW CAN I REALLY HELP THE PASTOR?

YES PREACH HARD AND GET THE CHURCH FIRED UP, STIR THEM TO DO SOMETHING FOR GOD!

YES TEACH THEM HOW TO WIN SOULS AND HOPEFULLY WIN SOME WHILE I’M HERE!

BUT I THINK ONE OF THE GREATEST HELPS I CAN GIVE IS TO

TEACH YOU HOW TO WALK IN THE PASTOR’S SHOES!

I BELIEVE THAT CHURCH MEMBERS

NEED TO HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE MINISTRY OF THE PASTOR IN THE LOCAL CHURCH!

THE PASTOR IS ONE WHO GOD CHOOSE TO PLACE OVER YOU TO FEED YOU, GUIDE YOU, PRAY FOR YOU, AND TEACH YOU THINGS OF GOD.

HE IS YOUR OVERSEER HERE ON THIS EARTH & HE WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT FOR HIS ACTIONS TO GOD.

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

JUST THINK ABOUT THIS HEAVY BURDEN UPON THE PASTOR!

HIS HAS HIS OWN LIFE TO KEEP CLEAN

IF MARRIED HIS WIFE TO TAKE CARE OF

IF HE HAS CHILDREN HE MUST MEET THEIR NEEDS

THE CHURCH FINANCES

MISSONS TO SUPPORT AND PRAY FOR

THE AREA HE LIVES IN FOR THE SOULS GETTING THE GOSPEL OUT

SERMONS TO PREPARE TO FEED YOU

PRAYER LIFE FOR NOT ONLY HIS OWN BUT EVERY ONE IN HIS CHURCH, PLUS THOSE YOU ASK HIM TO PRAY FOR & MORE

YET HE WILL STAND BEFORE GOD ONE DAY AND GIVE AN ACCOUNT!

WHAT DO WE DO GRIEVE HIM BY BACK BITTING, MURRMERING, SLANDER, GETTING MAD,

LEAVE THE CHURCH.

I BELIEVE THEIR JOB IS MUCH HIGHER AND MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNTIED STATES.

IN OUR TEXT THE PASTOR IS TO:

1)REPROVE 2) REBUKE

3) EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING & DOCTRINE.

IT IS EASIER TO EXHORT THAN IT IS TO REPROVE, OR REBUKE

(MAY I SAY THE PASTOR DOES NOT LIKE HAVING TO THESE BUT IT IS HIS JOB)

NOTICE REPROVE AND REBUKE COME BEFORE EXHORT

WITH LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE (DOCTRINE IS THE WORD OF GOD, AND IF THE PASTOR IS WORTH HIS SALT, IT IS THE KJV)

WE AS PEOPLE MUST REALIZE IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT A PASTOR HAS

STRONG CONVICTIONS (BIBLE BASED)

GREAT STUDY HABITS ( TO BE IN HIS BIBLE )

A GREAT PRAYER LIFE (SEEKING GOD FOR DIRECTION)

A COMPLETE SURRENDER TO GOD.

IF WE WOULD REALIZE THESE 3 THINGS IT WOULD HELP US UNDERSTAND THE POSITION OF A PASTOR

*IT IS NOT A SECULAR JOB- YOU JUST DON’T SAY I WANT TO BE A PASTOR, LIKE YOU WOULD CHOSE A CAREAR FIELD

*THE MINISTRY IS A CALLING FROM GOD NOT MAN

*WITH OUT A TRUE CALLING FROM GOD THE MAN WILL NOT LAST LONG AT ALL.

HAVE YOU EVER FELT I WISH THEY COULD WALK IN MY SHOES FOR AWHILE, & SEE HOW MY LIFE IS AND WHAT I GO THROUGH!

WITH THAT IN MIND THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO IN THIS MESSAGE.

LET YOU BE THE PASTOR AND WHAT WOULD YOU WANT IF YOU WERE TO PASTOR THIS CHURCH!

I HAVE FOUND IT INTERESTING HOW PEOPLE’S EXPECTIONS OF A PASTOR VARY!
