How You Should Be Like A Pastor

You are a leader.

Don’t laugh or deny it. It’s true. Someone looks to you as a leader. It may be a friend. Maybe you’re a parent. You could actually be in a leadership role.

You can learn a lot from a pastor.

I know what you’re thinking. You don’t think you can stand up in front of people and speak. That’s ok. That’s not what I’m talking about. Speaking is just a small part of what a pastor does. Pastors do a lot more.

One thing a pastor does is equip his congregation. If you read Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, you can see that his job is to build the body of Christ to do ministry. That’s what a leaders job is. You help others find and build their strengths so they can fulfill their potential.

Another job of the pastor is to protect his flock. Just like a shepherd protects his sheep, a pastor has to defend his people from all sorts of dangers. A leader must do this for those following him.

Is it easy to be a leader? No. You have to always be learning and seeking to be better. One way to do this is to learn from the Biblical role of the pastor.

    There have been lots of amazing leaders I’ve looked up to and continue to look up to as pastors.
