Do you know God’s will for your life?
Do you need help overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of your spiritual destiny?
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, â€œThe harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.â€
Jesus was sensitive to those who were “harassed and helpless”. He knew that they needed a shepherd or pastor to provide them with guidance and protection. To meet this need, Jesus trained leaders and sent them out to serve his people. This biblical role of pastor or shepherd is the same today, but sadly, many Christians never experience it. Many who sit in church Sunday after Sunday hear entertaining preaching but never receive the guidance they need to become what God wants them to be.
