The Duty of A Pastor to Fight for the Flock
This podcast briefly discusses that the Pastor should be involved in fighting for the church through the teaching of Scriptures and in his personal disciplines.
Ephesians 6:12 (ESV) 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
The pastor fights for the flock in his STUDIES, his PRAYERS, his TEACHING and his DISCIPLESHIP. These duties of a pastor are all necessary avenues for battle and they must be done for the sake of the church, those who are entrusted into his oversight. Fellowship with the brethren is essential in order to know their hearts and lives. As the flock grows, the pastor must accept the call of other men to the ranks of a shepherd to assist in this battle. A pastor who is faithful to these things will be equipped to handle the calling for which God has called him.
“What a pastor is supposed to be doing can be found clearly in the Word of God.”
