Hebrews 13:15

Today's memory verse is in Hebrews 13:15. This is related to our yesterday's memory verse. For those who came in late, we will be sharing verses about pastors to give us the correct standard in treating them.

Hebrews 13:15 says "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."

In this verse, we are instructed to obey those that have rule over us, and that includes our pastors. Do we obey our pastor? Do we follow his instructions? The Word of God also tell us the reason. Three reasons are given in this verse: they watch for our souls, they are accountable to God for our souls." It is their accountability if they were not able to teach the whole counsel of God. If they keep teachings profitable for themselves or if they did not teach doctrines that they supposed to teach. If we are accountable for ourselves in the sight of God, our pastor has double accountability. They are accountable for themselves and for us. So we have to obey them because it would be for our benefit.
