The Job of Pastor January 10, 2007

Joe,

I am in the midst of a great deal of work and was not sure if I would be able to post anything more today, but then I got an email from our friend Gino with a nice quote that is worth posting for sure. Mark Dever writes,

“If people are transformed ever more perfectly into the image Christ by gazing at Him (2 Cor. 3:18), then the job of the pastor and evangelist is not to come up with more innovative or clever methods. It is rather to present people with the clearest picture possible of biblical truth. The more clearly we present Christ’s person and work to our local churches, the more clearly we will come to reflect His glory together as if in a mirror.”

I would only add that this is the job not only of the pastor, but of every individual member of the body of Christ. Though I am one who labors at preaching and teaching, the greatest blessings in my life are those people who show Jesus to me. Whether they stand in a pulpit or not, they are precious gifts of heaven.

Thanks Gino, that quote was helpful in more ways than one!

Seeking to reflect Jesus in word and deed,

Larry
