Pastor’s Heart

 

“Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.”

Acts 20:28

 

The primary responsibility of the Pastors and Elders at Calvary Chapel Artesia is to teach the Word of God, the Scriptures, to feed the flock. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, it is the only truth that changes people from the inside out.

It is so important that we if stopped teaching the Word, then the miracle of lives being changed would also cease. Jesus said “apart from me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5b), therefore, teaching through the Scriptures, which all speak about Him (John 5:39), is critical to a vibrant and healthy relationship with our Lord.

This month’s scripture is so important as Paul is reminding the Elders of Ephesus that a healthy church is a well taught church and this teaching begins with the Pastors and Elders; Pastors and Elders cannot give out what we have not personally taken in by our own personal study time.

This is where our authority to lead CC Artesia comes from. It starts with our obedience to the truth. By practicing what we preach we then have earned the right to encourage to teach others. Even the Lord Jesus operated on that basis. He said to his disciples on one occasion, “If I do not do the works of my Father, do not believe me... “ (John 10:37). That is, if what I am doing is not in exact accord with what I am saying, then don't believe me!

As a result, Paul's encouragement to the Elders of Ephesus is a great reminder for the Pastors and Elders of CC Artesia. We must begin with ourselves before we can in good conscience stand in front of you to teach the Word

Please remember to keep all church leaders in your prayers. As shepherds of the church, they are highly responsible and accountable to Jesus as He purchased His Bride with his own blood.

Love in Christ,

 

Pastor Bob

 

 

 

Missions

 

Hudson Taylor

(1832-1905)

 

Hudson Taylor spent more than 50 years in China as a missionary and is known for his respect for the Chinese culture. He was widely criticized in his home country of England at the time for dressing like a China man in his efforts to blend in while sharing the Gospel. This practice made him much more accepted by the people when he preached.

Hudson Taylor was trained as a physician. He worked as a doctor, evangelist and translator while in China. He continued his translation work when he returned to England for medical reasons. He personally influenced hundreds of people to be missionaries in his lifetime. Many missionaries today attribute their introduction to the need for missions from reading biographies about Hudson Taylor.
