3 Ways You Can Bless Your Pastor

Being a pastor is not easy. As John Holt said it well, 

Ministry is giving when you feel like keeping, praying for others when you need to be prayed for, feeding others when your own soul is hungry, living truth before people even when you can’t see results, hurting with other people even when your own hurt can’t be spoken, keeping your word even when it is not convenient, it is being faithful when your flesh wants to run away.

Your pastor carries a significant responsibility and concern for the people in his church. As a church member, you can be either a blessing or a burden to him. 

Your influence on your pastor’s life is greater than you realize.

With that in mind, here are 3 simple ways you can bless your pastor.


The Joy of the Lord Is Our Strength

“God made human beings as He made His other creatures, to be happy…They are in their right element when they are happy,” said Charles Spurgeon. 

God wants us to be full of His joy. This joy is our strength, fuelling our obedience and giving us hope. Without joy, our spiritual lives will wither and starve. Knowing this, one of the enemy’s chief tactics is to steal our joy. 

How does he do this? With his trademark deceit, the enemy offers us two charmingly wrapped lies. If we believe them, he can weaken or outright steal our joy.
