The Job of a Pastor Is...

David Rohrer, in The Sacred Wilderness of Pastoral Ministry: Preparing a People for the Presence of the Lord, says that the job of the pastor is simple:
  • preach the Word, and
  • point people to Jesus.
That's it. That's all it is. That is enough.

Pastors - do that...  try that... and see what happens.

Let all your energies focus on this.

Be yourself pointed towards Jesus, like an arrow flying to the target's bullseye.

Abide deeply in Christ. Gain your strength from God in the accomplishing of these two things.
