Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 8/10/2020

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

crossEzek. 34:1-2 Then this message came to me from the LORD, “Son of man prophecy against the shepherds, the leaders of Israel. Give them this message from the Sovereign LORD: Destruction is certain for you shepherds who feed yourselves instead of your flocks. Shouldn’t shepherds feed their sheep?”

This devotional today is about pastors and for pastors. In the Scriptures pastors are often depicted as being shepherds, overseers of the people entrusted to them. This passage is a stern warning for pastors. God is warning those who are overseers who look out for themselves at the expense of their people. These are people who feed off of people instead of feeding people. God declares very clearly that their destruction is certain.

If you have a pastor who is not taking care of his people, you must do something about it. If you are not being fed, you are starving your soul to death. Your pastor has the responsibility to lead you into the Word where your soul can be fed. Only as you are continuously fed the Word are you able to feast and grow. Your pastor must constantly feed and challenge you on so that you don’t get lazy or satisfied with where you are at. Your pastor must stand guard over your soul so that any potential danger can be addressed before you are harmed.

A pastor who is not feeding his people is not fit to serve as a pastor. It is a grave sin for a pastor to take advantage of people or use them for personal gain. Anyone who would be more concerned about themselves and their personal comforts than they are about the needs of the people they serve will feel God’s wrath. Pastors should always feed their people.

Dear friend, hold your pastor accountable, but when you do, hold yourself accountable as well. No matter how well your pastor may be feeding you, you have to do your part. You must take what is being offered to you, chew on it, and swallow it before it can do you any good. You must be careful what you feast on and avoid those things which are bad for your spiritual health. You must be discerning and feast on what you need. What you need today may be different than what you need tomorrow. Listen to the Spirit of God and chew on what you need and not just what you want.

Don’t rely just on what your pastor may offer you. A once-a-week feeding binge will not meet your spiritual needs. You must be taking care of your soul daily. Your pastor can only do so much for you. Pray much for your pastor. If your pastor is feeding your soul, support, encourage, and thank your pastor often.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

The Point is … A Bad Day at Chick-fil-A 8/6/2020

Send to Kindle

by James Collins

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105         

People need the Bible now more than ever. The Bible is the ultimate instruction guide for living. It has in it everything that you’ll need to survive because life gets tougher every day. 

Have you had a bad day recently? A while back, I had one of those days. It started out that morning when I cut myself when shaving. I did more than nick myself. I cut a chunk out of my face. Blood was dripping down my chin. I stuck a wad of toilet paper on my face. The bleeding stopped. After a bit, I took the tissue off, and I started bleeding again. So, I went out with a big glob of toilet paper on my face. 

As I was getting in my truck to go to work, I hit the top of my forehead on the top of the cab. I saw stars. I thought I was going to pass out. When I got to work, someone came up to me and said, “Man! That is a giant knot on your head!” 

I thought that my day would get better because I had a meeting in town at the Chick-fil-A. I love Chick-fil-A. When I arrived at the restaurant, I ordered a BBQ chicken sandwich with waffle fries.  

I like to dip my waffle fries in Ranch Dressing. But I couldn’t open the little dressing packet. I was fiddling with the packet of Ranch Dressing trying to get it open when it burst. Ranch Dressing squirted all over me. I grabbed a bunch of napkins and tried to wipe the Ranch Dressing off my shirt.  

I picked up my BBQ chicken sandwich and I bit into it. The chicken slipped out of the bun and slid down my shirt. Now, I was covered in BBQ Sauce and Ranch Dressing.  

I hurried into the restroom to try to clean up. I reached up under the soap dispenser and pulled the handle. Soap squirted all over me. Liquid soap hit me in the face. Liquid soap spotted up my glasses. Liquid Soap got all over my shirt.  

I cleaned up as best as I could and went back out to finish my meal. When I got back to my table, I discovered that one of the workers at the Chick-fil-A had come by and thrown away my food.  

Ever the optimist, I tried to look on the bright side. I thought, “Well at least he didn’t throw out my sweet tea.” I reached down to get my sweet tea and I noticed this big glob of Ranch Dressing that I had missed on my shirt. I took my finger and scooped up the glob and I put it in my mouth. Only it wasn’t Ranch Dressing. It was liquid soap.  

Now I’m spitting and sputtering. I had a mouthful of soap. I thought, “I’ll wash it down with some sweet iced tea.” When I picked up that tea to take a drink, I felt something wet in my lap. I looked down. There was a hole in the bottom of my Chick-fil-A cup. 

By this time, I was frustrated. I was having a bad day. I went up to the counter to demand a new Sweet Tea.   

The lady behind the counter looked at me and her eyes got big. I was a sight. There was bloody toilet paper on my chin. I had a giant knot on my forehead. My shirt was stained with BBQ Sauce, Ranch Dressing, and liquid soap. My pants were wet from sweet tea. I looked like I had lost control of my bladder. 

The lady behind the counter looked at me and said, “Honey, you’ve had a rough day, haven’t you?” Sarcastically, I said, “Yes, I have. Thank you very much.” She smiled and said, “It’s my pleasure.” 

The point is: Sometimes we have bad days in life. However, we have a survival guide for living. We have the Bible to be a lamp unto our feet and a light to guide our path. We have the Bible to lead us.  

I have been preaching out of the Bible for years. I’ve preached the Bible in places that were dead, and I’ve seen them come alive. I’ve preached the Bible to people that were hurting, and I’ve seen them healed. I’ve preached the Bible to those who were lost, and I’ve seen them saved.  

How often do you read God’s Word? If you and I are not in the Bible daily – if it is not hidden in our hearts – then we will be destroyed by this wicked world. Pick up your Bible. Blow the dust off it. Start reading it. It will make your bad day better.
