“And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Romans 10:15 KJV
Today is Pastor Appreciation Day and I can honestly say that my pastor, Pastor J Harold Davis, is the best pastor I have ever had. Not only is he a good preacher; he also has a pastor’s heart. He doesn’t just tell us how we should live and love, He shows us how to live and love by his actions.
God must really love me to allow me the privilege of having him as my Pastor. We honor our pastors today but we should honor our pastors every day of the year. Our pastors are on call twenty four hours a day. There are times they have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the hospital.
Our pastors sacrifice time with their families to minister to us when we are hurting and need our pastor. May God help us to not only pray for our pastor but also be an encouragement to our pastor every day. If you have a preacher who has a pastor’s heart, thank God for your pastor.
Heavenly Father, I pray for Pastor Davis and for every pastor who is preaching the good news of our risen Saviour. Please encourage our pastors, comfort them and let them know how much You appreciate their service to You and how much You love them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
