Today's Pastor

A good leader is someone you will follow, even when he makes a mistake.

This is why the role of a pastor is such a high level leadership position. As a pastor, if you do not make the correct decision and fall into a deep dark pit, those people that have been following along behind you, will follow you down into that pit.

To those people, you have all the answers, even if you really don't. You know exactly what it is they need. They feel safe around you and know you are reliable. The reason for this is because you desire nothing more than for the children of God to be taken care of, to be nurtured, and to be taken care of correctly.

A shepherd does not choose his flock, but rather the flock chooses him, and as someone who is called to be a pastor, you need to learn how to avoid the pitfalls, and how to take care of your sheep. The first step is learning just what exactly it means to be a pastor, how it works, and why the Church needs you to be a pastor.

In this book, Colette takes you on a journey through your life and paints a picture of what today's pastor really looks like, and is supposed to be doing. Perhaps you have felt that pull already, the pull of those sheep coming to you for help, and sharing things they really shouldn't, because they feel you will be able to help them. Welcome to being a pastor! It is time to discover what that truly means.

This book was awesome. I have never even considered half of the principles in this book though I have read these verse hundreds of time. Now I can see from these principles all that have called themselves pastor whether they are or not.

It's OK To Escape

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD [Yahweh] [is] a tower of strength:the righteous runs to it, and is high [above danger]. (AMIV)
Having one of those days? You do not need to fight every battle alone. Instead, escape into His presence!
