AN UNFORTUNATELY ALL TOO COMMON STORY

AN UNFORTUNATELY ALL TOO COMMON STORY

 

LEADERS BEWARE!

LEADERS BEWARE!

 

PASTOR DEVOTES YEARS AND YEARS TO MINISTRY

MINISTRY GAINS INTERNATIONAL STATUS

MILLIONS OF LIVES TOUCHED ALL AROUND THE WORLD

ONE UN-DEALT WITH VICE

ONE POOR DECISION

THEN ANOTHER

AND ANOTHER

AND OTHERS

THEN SUDDENLY

EXPOSURE

EVERYTHING SHAKES THAT CAN BE SHAKEN

SHOCK, DISAPPOINTMENT, SURPRISE, DESPAIR

THE CROWDS YELL, “CRUCIFY HIM”

THE CHURCH WORLDWIDE IS VILIFIED

“HYPOCRITES!” “FAKES!” “LIARS!” 

THE TRUTH AND ESSENCE OF CHRISTIANITY IS ATTACKED

SAINTS WAVER

SOME SLIP

SOME FALL

SOME TURN AWAY

WHEN THE DUST SETTLES

IN SPITE OF IT ALL

JESUS IS STILL THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE

SO DON’T GET DISTRACTED

KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIM

HE IS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF YOUR FAITH

TRUST IN HIM

NOT IN  MAN

FOR GOD ALONE IS PERFECT

FLESH SHALL FAIL.

 

REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR OUR PASTORS AND LEADERS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.

THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS.

 

SELAH!

Kim

  1. Excellent advice. When I began to pray for our pastor and his wife, the Lord began to show me how often they are “kicked,” “bitten,” or told off by the sheep they’ve dedicated their lives to serve. As a result, they were feeling pretty beaten up. Your call to pray for them is truly inspired by the Lord!

  2. Thanks Tamara!…..praise the Lord for the work of His Spirit….\o/….and praise Him because the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much…blessings!
