Your Pastor's Heart
Psalm 23 in the NKJV A Psalm of David. 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow…
What is the church?
If the biblical evidence argues for a congregational polity, that is- the evidence in the NT shows the church as a whole, or the congregation making all the decisions in the church, then were does that leave the authority of the pastor? How can a pastor lead or shepherd the flock, if the flock is the…
The book of Psalms is perhaps one of the most beloved books of the Bible by many followers of Jesus Christ. It is full of beauty and wonder, of worship and adoration, of confidence and trust. Of all the psalms in the Bible perhaps none is better known that the 23rd psalm. It is a passage loved by people…

Easter 3C: Uses RCL lectionary texts. Gives fresh meaning to Christ's call to "follow me," and connects this with both the mission of the Church in everyday life and the Eucharistic celebration. Meant as a 10-minute Eucharistic sermon.

This passage is one of the important descriptions of the New Testament office of Pastor. It is interesting because it does not include either the verb or title of teacher/preacher. It also interchangeably uses 3 titles for Pastor: Elder, Shepherd (Pastor), Overseer (Bishop). The Passage provides a clear call for Pastor's to shepherd the church willingly, selflessly serving as overseer's and examples.
