The Lord calls men to shepherd His flock. But nowhere in Scripture does God call His people a herd. They are a flock, and the leaders are called shepherds. There is one distinctive thing about sheep; they cannot be driven. You can drive a herd of cattle… but you cannot drive sheep. They must be led!
Called A Pastor
Word of the Week
Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
The New King James Version, (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers) 1998, c1982.
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Dear Man of God,
I thank God for the gift that you are to the body of Christ. The church and the people in general truly need the word of the Lord as this word has become scarce and difficult to obtain. I wanted a prophet to give me a word from God and I had to pay $1000 to get the word – money I could not afford.
You, however, have made the true, tested word of the Lord available to anyone who needs it, and for this I give God the glory for having made you available to the body of Christ.
Very clearly you have not traded seeking the Lord for a true word from Him, for anything else, and very clearly you take the time to hear from God concerning the lives of His children. I should stop writing this but I am tempted to continue, because my heart is rejoicing so much. You are not peddling with the Word of the Lord, and so be it forever, for the glory of God, and for the welfare of His people!
I am thankful to God dear Servant of the Most High. The word was spot on and I will hold on to it.
In His Service,
