Pastors, we are to do this….

Many things can call for our attention, but this what it’s all about……..

Pastors are called not just to preach exegetically correct and theologically precise sermons but also to pastor people, to walk, live, support and suffer with them. They are called to be more than local-church theological instructors; they are called to be Christ’s ambassadors, to be the look on his face, the touch of his hand, the tone of his voice. They need to feel the weight of being called to make an invisible Christ visible in the lives of people who desperately need to “see” his presence and remember his grace. They aren’t called just to teach theology to their people, but also to do theology with their people.
