Often Overlooked

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.  Hebrews 13:17 KJV

The often overlooked truth in scripture is God’s requirement that respect, honor, and obedience to God given leadership is required of every believer.

The pride of man and the spirit of rebellion, so prevalent in our society, has caused much confusion and strife in the Body of Christ.

Just as the father in a family is to be honored, respected and yielded to, so the Pastor (Bishop, Overseer) is to be obeyed.

Arguing with, ignoring, or otherwise “doing your own thing” rather than carrying out the assignment given by your Pastor is worldly and unfruitful. Such behavior only hinders the cause and work of God.

Make a decision to be a part of the work of God and get behind your Pastor.
