Life Coach?

If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct. Ecclesiastes 10:10 KJV

Why do so many people want life coaches but don’t listen to their pastors? Imagine, ignoring a man of God and listening to the world instead.

Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17 KJV

Every Christian needs to willingly yield to the discipline and training of their pastor.

This will “coach” you to a life of victory in every area of life.


Life Coach

Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established. Proverbs 15:22 KJV

These days, it seems that everyone wants to be a life coach or a mentor. Sadly, way too many haven’t lived long enough to have developed successful life skills themselves.

Mentors and coaches are good to the degree they have something worthwhile to offer. Find a seasoned mentor that is more interested in your well-being than a check.

You don’t have to start from the bottom. Start where others have left off. In other words, find and maintain a relationship with someone older and more experienced than you who has the heart of the Father.

This kind of mentor will allow you to soar while helping you past the obstacles that only experience can see.

Pastors need pastors as do all five-fold offices and market place ministers.

He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. Proverbs 15:32 KJV


Called

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

A true pastor does not choose to be one. The office is not one that is by the choice of man but by the choice and call of God.

A pastor must watch over the souls entrusted to him and is held responsible by God Himself. He is answerable to no man, but is totally accountable to God.

His is a supernatural ministry gift enabled and empowered by none other than the Holy Spirit.

His authority is God given and he is anointed for the task.

Never take it upon yourself to be what God has not called you to be.

But, never run from His call upon your life.


Pastors


And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15 KJV

It’s Pastor Appreciation Month.

While I realize that some just went, I also know that many are sent. Your Pastor, a sent one, is a gift from God to you. Receive, cherish, honor, and care for your Pastor.

It’s a serious calling that can only be fulfilled supernaturally. Pastors need prayer support, faithful helps ministries and congregants, and regular support.

That is the functioning body of Christ. Everyone bringing their supply of the Spirit into the house of God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. Hebrews 13:7 KJV

Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.  

Galatians 6:6 KJV Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.  For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.  1 Timothy 5:17‭-‬18 KJV
