1 Timothy 3:2-7  "Office of Pastor"

Last time we looked at the call of a pastor.  Now we take a look at the kind of man a pastor should be.  I must say no man is perfect or totally displays the characteristics given in this text, but he does live in such a way that there is no question of his commitment to Christ and the church.  In a few words, the pastor is to live in a Christ like manner, follow Christ in such a way that the pastor can say to his church "follow me as I follow Christ".  Pray for your pastor so that the Holy Spirit is working in his life and it is evident to his church family.  We who are pastors must also pray that we do live a life that pleases our Lord.
