Pastors? – SoS Saturdays

If you yourself do not know, Most beautiful among women, Go forth on the trail of the flock, And pasture your young goats By the tents of the shepherds. (Song of Songs 1:8 NASB)

Now our girl has suffered some abuse and some frustration at the hand of her mother’s sons, and her heart cries out for only one man, the lover of her soul.

But God’s intention is that we live our out our love affair with Jesus with some guidance.

The shepherds.

These are people in our lives who are throwing kindling on the warm embers of our passion, and fanning it into flame. They draw us forward toward the place where the Good Shepherd is tending His flock.

Especially in the US we have this fierce independence, and easily fall for the lie that ‘we don’t need no stinkin’ pastors,’ or ‘Jesus is my Pastor.’

That is a bunch of phooey!

We need to live in community with those who are headed where we are headed.

David lamented ‘No man cared for my soul.’

Don’t let you passion for Christ alone drive you away from the body. It’s not a perfect system, and you won’t find a perfect Church, but get a shepherd in your life.

Maybe they won’t have the title ‘Pastor’ but God has people around you for a reason.
