I thought I would share a poem I wrote about our pastor for our church's Pastor Appreciation Day service last month. I'm truly thankful that God has blessed my husband and I with such a man for a pastor and friend.
There is a special person
God brought into our lives.
He’s been with us through ups and downs,
prayed for us while we cried.
We’ve grown to love his family,
many that they be.
His precious wife is ever near,
at work behind the scenes.
He Preaches with conviction,
of a Christ who changed his heart.
He sometimes uses more than words...
(By acting out each part)!
He Teaches us with wisdom
from time spent with God above.
He Guides with truthful counsel,
but most of all he Loves.
He doesn’t serve for money,
his salary is nil;
nor accolades, nor praise of men,
but thanks we give him still.
He serves out of obedience,
a mind set on the Lord.
So we will serve alongside him,
our hearts in one accord.
God gave us Christ, salvation,
heavens promise in the end.
But life on earth’s been better,
with our Pastor and our Friend.

I was just reading I Cor. 6:20 "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."
I am a child of God, redeemed, with the promise of an eternal home in heaven because I was purchased, paid for, by Jesus' blood. Because he did this for me, I can at the very least obey this command to glorify Him. My body and spirit belong to God - that is why when we who are saved, are not living for Him, glorifying HIm, there is unrest, dissatisfaction, even health issues. I want to glorify Him today and always. He is worthy of all our praise!
