Why Pastors Need the Body of Christ

Pastor, have you ever asked the question, "Who am I, and what do I spiritually need?" Or have you ever thought about your pastor and asked, "Who's my pastor, and what does he need in order to remain spiritually healthy and to grow in grace?" Does it seem right and healthy to you that in many churches no one gets less of the ministry of the body of Christ than the pastor? Does it seem best to you that most pastors live outside of and above the body of Christ?

If every pastor is in the middle of his own sanctification, shouldn't he receive the normal range of essential ministry from the body of Christ that God has ordained for every member? Is there any indication in the New Testament that the pastor is the exception to the normal rules that God has designed for the health and grow of his people? Is it possible that we've constructed a kind of relationship of the pastor to his congregation that can't ...

Just considering here.

Perhaps what Pastors and congregations both need is to come once again under the authority of the God's Word and learn afresh the fear of the Lord and the mighty Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ

Then in the faith God Himself authors, honors and so greatly rewards, the local church growing to be of one mind with one another according to Christ can be a wonderful encouragement to each other in the faith.

Or we can attempt to figure things all out and in so doing miss the Truth and Treasure that is right there today for us in the Bible and in the Salvation we have in Christ and the so fulfilling call we have in serving Him, one another and witnessing to the lost and especially in powerful intercessory prayer for all the saints.

C.H. Spurgeon (wonderfully knowledgable) is noted on commenting on how the people of his congregation prayed for him and his preaching, NOT for complaining about them.

Cure for the Levitical Class  Find all comments by Cure for the Levitical Class
The Amish weekly rotate their Sunday services to different neighborhood barns. Each husband is pastor when it's his week to host. No Amish is allowed to have any higher than a middle school education.

Professional MDiv and PhD pastors are an isolated, unnecessary and lonely lot. Hotshot preachers are unknowable at best (MacArthur) and rogue at worst (Schaap).

The way to cure this is "fire" your pastor, sell your building, do homechurching and invite him to preach, but only when it's his time to host. Then he'll be embedded in your body of Christ just like the first century.
