Monday Preacher’s Blues: You’re Not The Messiah, You Just Tell Others About Him

Leave a comment

Monday is a good day for a pastor to remember they’re not the Messiah.
Our privileged task is to tell others about Jesus who is the Messiah, and any time we start thinking it all depends on us it’ll end badly.
Monday is a good day to remember that otherwise you’d feel bad about yourself for feeling so wiped out.
From Valiant For Truth:

the pastor can deceive himself into thinking that he can solve any problem that comes his way and that if people only listen to him, things will run smoothly in the church. Confidence in God’s word and the power of the Spirit to transform lives can easily shift to arrogance and pride in one’s own abilities to fix things.
