I Never Wanted to be a Pastor… My father was a pastor for 56 years and I said, “I will never do that.” Yet, here I am…
I will honestly say to you, “My job is to share Gods Word with you. To help lead you to Christ. To help you live a more godly life that follows Christ’s teaching…and that I struggle myself. I fail and I don’t have all the answers.”
There are things which I continue to struggle with today. There are times where I do not live a godly life. There are times where I am focused on myself and not on God…I was baptized when I was 14 years old and I can tell you I have 1,000’s more things to repent for AFTER my baptism than before. I fail Him every day. Yet I love God and continue everyday to actively follow after Him.
I find the Word of God, Christ’s teachings utterly AMAZING! I’ve studied them all my life. I’ve asked God for guidance all my life, and still I struggle. I still fall. I still………….And, still I find more wondrous love coming from Him. I find more inspiration from His Word. The more I dig the more love and amazement find.
Fact is, I’m never going to tell you I’ve got God’s world figured out.And, no pastor ever should!
Fact is, I’m no saint.There’s not a pastor on this planet that is.
God knows all of our back stories. He knows more of the ins and outs of our lives than we could ever come close to knowing. He knows the how, what, when, where and why of our actions BEFORE we ever do them. Yet He still loves us. He STILL wants to use us.
All we can do I commit ourselves to Him. All we can do is submit our lives to Him. The more fully we give our lives to Him, the closer we walk with Him, the more we SEE Him, the more we LIVE like He wants us to. I believe God has great plans for Faith Christian Church! I, also, know and believe God has great plans for you! We Want You Here! Come Learn and grow with us!
