Luk 23.42-43

“…Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom…”

“…To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

 

 

Christ is the “middle” of the Trinity – Father, Son, Holy Ghost

Christ’s life is the “middle” of world history – B.C., His life, A.D.

Christ was on the middle cross – Thief #1, Christ, Thief #2

Jer 3.15

“And I will give you pastors according to mine heart,

God created man with masculine characteristics. He in His marvelous wisdom gave him a female helpmeet. He didn’t make them to compete with each other – He made them to complete each other. Not one heathen (Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Greek, Roman) nor one “modern christian” has improved on God’s male/female balanced structure. The devil & his sin-slaves dislike it because God made it!

“They tell us now that Isaac Watts did not speak the idiom of today.

Well, neither did Shakespeare but they’re still studying him.”

– Vance Havner, /On This Rock/

The best pastor is a constant student of the Bible. The best pastor disciplines himself to read so much but disciplines himself to not read all the time.     The best pastor learns to listen: to his wife, children, his people, children of his people. The best pastor takes a day off & doesn’t “pastor” that day (except in emergency). Strive to be that best pastor OR help your pastor be one. – eab, 3/24/18
