"Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind..." 1 Peter 5:2

Young preachers should understand that their purpose is to selflessly assume the pastoral care of churches in need. God raises up fresh gifts to fill voids among His churches. We should realize from the beginning of our respective ministries that service is the reason we have been gifted.

By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. Hebrews 11:31

Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? James 2:25

Please don't take this the wrong way.

I really don't understand the obsession so many believers have with judging the eternal salvation of others. I see it among both Arminian and Calvinist believers, but probably worse among Calvinists.

Imperfect People PDF Print E-mail

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are... James 5:17

 

Most disciples feel completely inadequate to serve God in any capacity. Many times it is simply because we feel that we are not worthy, or perfect enough to serve God. Frankly, we are not perfect. We are undeniably imperfect, and will continue to be imperfect in our current pilgrimage until Christ's second coming. Yet, the text above shows that even imperfect people “subject to like passions” can serve God in ways above their natural imperfections. Consider the example found in Elijah. He was subject to hunger and exhaustion. He was fed by birds, widows, and angels. He suffered persecution, trials, and affliction. Above all else his depression led him to beg God to take his life.

For the Furtherance of the Gospel PDF Print E-mail

“But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; So that my bonds are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;” – Philippians 1:12-13

 

The Apostle Paul pens this epistle to the church at Philippi during his first Roman imprisonment which occurred probably near 61-63 AD. The Philippian church had sent a messenger, Epaphroditus, to Paul to provide aid to him in prison, who Paul commended for his service towards him (Phil. 2:25-30).  It appears that the messenger had relayed to Paul the church’s concern and attitude of despair for Paul’s current condition in prison. Paul, in these verses, rather redirects the Philippian church to have his own positive perspective of how God in His providence used Paul’s imprisonment in Rome for “the furtherance of the gospel” to allow certain of God’s children in that city to come to the knowledge of the gospel.
