I am still pondering my sheepy family. My church family. And today I had a revelation. Shepherds in the field cannot produce lambs. The sheep must reproduce. It is the same in church. It is not the job if the pastor to grow the flock. His job is to teach and look after the flock. It is the job of the sheep, us, the congregation members, to grow the congregation. If your church is stagnant, you and the rest if the congregation is to blame, not the pastor. If the congregation is not growing, the congregation members are not doing what Jesus commanded us to do: Go ye and make disciples….
Stop criticizing the pastor. Start reproducing!
