“By biblical standards, reverencing a pastor means honoring him with your words, actions, and thoughts; encouraging, praying for, and building him up. But most important…a pastor is an important advocate, a shepherd who helps guide us in our walk with Christ.” A Jane Austen Devotional
I am posting these references to reverencing our church leaders a day early. As I read them today, they reminded me to pray for my pastor before Sunday’s sermon. They prompted me to pray for my church and the churches of family and friends. They challenged me to pray for leaders within other denominations, especially for discernment for those choosing the papal successor. May God be glorified through “those who spread the Message” and “those who believe the Message”!
