Unfortunately, it has become commonplace to hear of some pastor who has gone astray morally. Such downfalls are often financial or sexual, but pastoral failings are not limited to these. The shepherd’s flock is usually devastated by such revelations. Some wounds take a long time to heal. How many more such debacles have to occur before people realize that church is no longer a divine institution as it was in New Testament days? The kingdom of God has come but today’s churches go on as man-made and, literally, godforsaken institutions. They should put “Ichabod” on their doors (1 Samuel 4:16-22). At least that way, the sheep would be warned.
There is one Shepherd who will never fall to sin. His flock will never be scattered, or depressed, or devastated. His name is Jesus and He lives today to pastor all who will submit to His loving care. If you can have His care, why would you seek anyone else’s?
Jesus was struck down once – not for His own sin, but because of the sins of others. He was raised from the dead, however, never to die again. As He is lifted up, He draws all men to Himself. He shepherds the one true flock of God.
Stop putting your trust in human pastors – trust the One Pastor who will never fall to sin.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
