A Pastor’s Care – The call of a Pastor is like no other ministry call. It is a call that appoints one to oversee the overall work of the local church ministry and executing “The Great Commission of Christ. Pastors have been appointed with the heart of God to stand in his stead (Jer. 3:15).
It’s Just A Tent – A tent is defined as a portable shelter made of cloth or some other material, supported by a simple support structure. It is designed to be sturdy, and transportable in the event conditions or circumstances warrant. The Apostle Paul wrote of the body we live in as Believers, is a tent, a temporary dwelling place (2 Cor. 5:1). At some point in time due to situations and circumstances beyond our control, we’re going fold and pack up this tent. It is a truth, this is the only earthly body we will get. And God does expect us to take care of it as it is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19-20).
“For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Cor. 5:1
Because we will be disrobed of the earthly body and be given a new one that will fitted for eternity (1 Cor. 15:53-54), we are encouraged by the word of the not to be too attached to it, it’s just a tent.
