UNleash Mind Dump (Part 2)

I was supposed to do this yesterday but I took the day off and spent some quality time with my wife which was much needed.  I probably have never said this here but my wife ROCKS (and is hot to boot)

Ok here it goes

  • God can give you a sloppy wet kiss or a big fat kick….it’s his prerogative
  • If you are a pastor every week the rocks are coming…people will want to stone you
  • Acts 14:8-10 Paul heals a man—- that is a Great day in ministry
  • Be careful listening to the crowd. Those that deify will crucify
  • Acts 14:11-19 Paul is stoned— Yeah pretty much a bad day in ministry
  • Acts 14:20 Paul continues on—-Call to every pastor
  • They stoned Paul…..the pastor…not any of the support staff….the Pastor

3 Rocks that are thrown

  1. Deception
    • Pastors you do NOT have to do everything
    • The Bible says those that will not work are LAZY but those who will not rest are DISOBEDIENT
    • The second most abused person in the church is the Pastor’s wife
    • Pastor Jesus doesn’t need you to love HIS bride he needs you to love YOURS
    • Pastor you will never impress your wife with your job performance…
  2. Distraction
    • Churches have a lot of agendas other than Jesus
    • God is not green….. Kermit is
    • Pastors, your people can believe in you and go to hell or believe in Jesus and be saved
    • God can use us because we were barren and worthless and He could receive the most glory from us
    • Pastor you will never impress your wife with your job performance…
  3. Discouragement

3 words to remember

  1. Awareness
    • We make mistakes because we are unaware
  2. Unity
    • We have too many HUGE Understandings in the church
    • Lead with integrity be who God called you to be not some stereotype
    • Get big vision from God stop trying to push yours
    • Listen to your staff they are called to do their jobs not to have you do it for them
    • Keep short accounts do not hold on to bitterness
    • Make expectations clear and realistic
    • Honor your staff’s time they have families too
  3. Passion
    • If you can’t support the vision of your church get off the team
    • If your pastor is disobedient then let God cut him down (that is HIS job)
    • When a pastor has staff and leadership that gather around him he will be able to get up no matter what stones have hit him

    written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
