Churches have pastors / elders / overseers which lead them. These serve as under-shepherds to Jesus. The Father appointed Jesus to be the leader of the church:
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23 NIV
Do we think of Jesus as a distant and lax leader of our church?
Lord Jesus, help our local church to have a growing appreciation of your personal, intentional leadership of us. May this reality cultivate a deeper heart of worship in us, bring a contentment for what circumstances our church is navigating through, and a growing trust for the direction you are taking our church. May it give us peace, rest and hope.
I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
