Now it’s up to you. Be on your toes—both for yourselves and your congregation of sheep. The Holy Spirit has put you in charge of these people—God’s people they are—to guard and protect them. God himself thought they were worth dying for. Acts 20:28
I remember a teaching from long ago that said we are all ministers. They even handed out cards with the churches name and “Ministry Team” and told us to write out names on them.
We don’t have to be an official pastor with a seminary degree. None of the original twelve disciples or Jesus had that. The Pharisees and teachers of the law studied plenty but they were not the ones Jesus passed the mantle too.
Jesus, “Do you love me?”
Peter, “You’ve got to know that I love you.”
Jesus, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:17
Are you leaving the job up to others?
It’s your call.
