What I read today;
Revelation 19-20; Acts 27; Jeremiah 23; Psalm 89; 1 Chronicles 26-27; Leviticus 5
Those who are in the public ministry have taken a solemn position. Jeremiah 23 warns them that if they are going to be effective, they have to preach God’s Word not there own.
That’s difficult. We all come at things with our own biases. We all look at the world with different colored glasses.
What makes it even more difficult is that we want to please those in our pews. The problem is that sometimes the Word of God will pierce the heart of an individual.
That’s why it’s important to preach using only the Word of God.
We can change our opinions on teachings as long as they line up with God’s message.
That’s also why we need to pray for our Pastors. They have an incredibly difficult job to do. Keep them in your prayers.
