Pastoring is one of the most challenging and yet the most rewarding of all vocations. On the one hand, every message is the most important and people's lives depend on it. On the other hand, I'm just a seed scatterer. And the fruit of that all-too-important message may take a while to show up. But I am confident that God will have His way if I remain faithful.
It is not my job to make people do right. Rather, it is my privilege to lead people down a peaceable path to truth. I am here to challenge and to dig out the lies that get stuck in people's ears. And I am here to reassure the people of God's commitment and His love for them. I consider it a great honor to serve God by serving His people.
