As humans, we put faith in a-lot of things and people who will eventually let us down. Last Sunday, my pastor said something that everyone needs to hear. We look up to the people who lead our church. The Pastor, the Music Minister, or a Youth Pastor, but they are human, just like us; they are tempted by the devil just like us, and they will fall just like we do. They may lie, which may seem like a little thing, but don’t they tell us that lying is wrong? Or they do something like cheat on their wife? And they tell us that’s wrong?
The people we look up to will fall to sin, and fail us. So why do we put faith in them? Why not in God? Who won’t let us down.
Now, I’m not saying don’t trust a minister or pastor, not at all. I look up to the ministry staff at my church, and I trust them. But, especially this morning, I got a HUGE wake-up call. I realized that honestly, I think that we all put the ministers to higher expectations because of their position and they will let you down. In ways that you just kinda don’t wanna believe.
But, what has been engraved in my mind now, is that; Don’t look up to the man in the pulpit who is preaching, because he will fall to sin, but look up to God, and our risen Savior who is perfect, and won’t fail you.
