Who is our God?

Be Still by Stephanie Marrott
Be Still

Lately, there was a situation that made me feel a bit sad and that made me think about who is our God. I'm not going to write about that specific situation because I don't want to expose anyone but I would just like to say that I feel sad when people go to church or to some church activity just because a certain pastor or preacher is going to be there. It is obvious that there are people who are more gifted to preach than others, but we shouldn't go to church just because that person is going to be there. We have wonderful preachers whom we love to listen to but they're not our gods. We only have one God and He is everywhere. The Bible says: «For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them" (Matthew, 18:20).

I agree with you. A church isn't just the Pastor, it is the people.

What you say is so true regarding holding a pastor in too high a favor. The attention is taken off the Lord and on to the person. I think that a lot of us have seen the situation or even been guilty of it, but thanks for the reminder of where to keep our eyes focused.

PS- I also commented on your Christmas decorations:)
