We shouldn’t just set a month or a day aside of the year to show that we appreciation our pastors. We should show that daily by the way we live. Showing the pastor that we are hearing and obeying God’s Word, The Bible.

These men of God put other things aside for our needs to help give us the Word of God. Most people think that outreach is the pastors job or a lot of other things, but if you know the Bible, you know that we are to help the pastor. That we are the church. The Church is not a building. That pastor needs us to step up and help in areas.

Don’t forget to show appreciation to the pastors wife and even the pastors kids (PK’s).

Remember we don’t follow the pastor! We follow Jesus! The Pastor is the one that delivers the message that God has for us to hear.

Also a pastoral job is not in it for the money, at least he shouldn’t be. He should be in it to see the lost saved and people to know God better.

Make sure you attend a church where the pastor is not afraid to preach the truth. One that actually is a full Bible Preaching Believing Church!
