18 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath met with us:…
It is not right for any pastor or minister to be anyone’s God.
Everyone must meet God for himself of herself.
Church members are likened to sheep; they are very vulnerable.
A minister can easily become a God in the eyes of the members to the point where they focus on him instead of God Almighty.
This point where churchmembers want to consult the minister concerning everything they do daily is very dangerous and some ministers have unfortunately taken advantage and manipulated members to their selfish gain.
You must meet God and I have a personal conviction about Him;
Do not become a minister of God or a pastor because someone told you; make sure you have that conviction from God.
There are many who have gone into ministry because of
- bad economy
- poor education
- academic failure
However there are also ministers who by the grace of God
- are decorated with degrees and doctorates
- have run successful institutions
- held businesses
and have left all to become ministers.
We can be a crowd as a church and yet there may be individuals within who have not met God.
I pray that you meet God for yourself and have a personal conviction today, in Jesus Might Name.
