Jeremiah 3:15 says “and I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. Colossians 1:18 also says “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning… So from what I gather is that Jesus Christ is the head of the Church. He will give you pastors. So can we conclude that Pastors are not in charge of the church. Jesus Christ is!
So with that being said, we as Pastors have been placed, but not in charge. we have to understand the difference. To be in place means you are the steward to managed which has been given to you, but you’re not in charge. We act like we have the final say and we are in charge. That Jesus reports to us instead of the other way around.
This is a great revelation to understand and operate in. Because when Jesus is in charge we have His resources to operate His church. When we are in charge, we have our own resources which is not sustainable. Which would you rather have? So Pastors when we start to ego trip remember we have been placed and not in charge. You will be muich happier.
