They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 1 John 2:19 KJV

Every Pastor has experienced the heart break of having those he has poured his heart into walk away without looking back.

Countless hours of discipling, biblical counseling, prayer, seeminly vaporize in an instant. They just said, “I love you Pastor,” and then in the blink of an eye leave to go to another church.

The hardest part is letting them go, but our verse today shows that this is not a new or isolated occurance.

You gave what you could. God will take care of it all. You did your part. That’s all you are required to do.
