God's man our example

"Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an example." (Phil. 3:17)

"Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." (Phil. 4:9)

Many, especially young people, in our present culture are emulating the worse elements in society. Although that is true, our 'church-culture' should demonstrate a stark contrast. God has given gifts to each church for the growth of each saint (or believer) within that body. The pastor-teacher or the pastor is God's man who sets the example for the church to follow. This is a heavy responsibility on his part, but it goes with the vocation. This is part of the reason why having godly standards for God's man is important. He leads by example. I have always been thankful to the men of God that the Lord has put in my life to care for my soul. I must say "Praise be to God," since I have truly been blessed to have the right example put before me from the time I trusted in Christ as my Lord and Savior.

This is a good point, but the sad thing is that many times we do not heed the warnings of the man of God that has been put before us. I to am thankful for those men of God that have poured their time and prayers into my life.
