What We Simply Need from Our Pastors…

And we need a communion of saints he has chosen and redeemed with us and for us.  We need ordinary believers of every generation, race and socioeconomic background to whom we’re united by baptism to one Lord and one faith by one Spirit.  We simply need ordinary pastors to deliver the word of life and its sacraments faithfully, elders to guide us to maturity and deacons to help keep the temporal gifts circulating in the body.
