Jeremiah 3:15

Hey, welcome back! How was your weekend? How did God spake to you through the preaching of the Word? Were you blessed, encouraged, challenged or reproved by the Word of God? Were you able to remember to thank God for your pastor for being God's mouthpiece in sending you His Message?

Most of the time, we members of the church neglect our pastors. We often give them the least importance but most responsibilities. Sometimes, they even become the center of our criticisms and the recipients of our never ending complaints. Sad, but there are even churches who condemn their pastors for their mistakes forgetting that pastors are also human beings who are also susceptible to sins and temptations. They kick their pastors out from their church as if they are the ones who chose their pastors.

I was too blessed by God's message last night on our Sunday Evening Service delivered by one of the preachers in our church that I desire to encourage you to memorize verses that pertain to pastors. This is to encourage you to love your pastors and give double honor. I encourage you to join me as I memorize these verses and glorify God as we continue to study the Scripture.

For the initial verse, I want to share with you the text of last night's message. The reference text is in Jeremiah 3:15. The Word of God in Jeremiah 3:15 says "And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding."

In this verse, it is clearly stated that pastor our from God's own heart. They were given to us, to teach us the Word of God, to help us understand it, to nourish our spiritual bodies through the preaching of the Word of God. We are not the one who choose them, but God. If it is God who chose them and put them in their position, only God can also take away that position from him. We as members of the church have no right to replace him anytime we want and choose someone who will fit to our own set of qualifications. Only God can fill-in the Pastoral's Office. If Satan is in process of deceiving us to afflict our pastor, let us be reminded that our pastor is given to us by God according to His own heart .

Let us continue to pray for our pastors that God may continue to use him for our spiritual growth.
