Accountability ( PTOM 8 )

(Last week and this I am sharing my Personal Theology of Ministry. Click here for more posts from the Personal Theology of Ministry series.)

The pastor is responsible to God and the church:

Therefore I will be accountable for my ministry. Those who have been given a trust must prove faithful (1 Corinthians 4:2). Those who have been faithful with little things will be trusted with much (Luke 16:10-12). Therefore I will endeavor to set the example by following the example of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1). I will watch over the church as one who must give an account (Hebrews 13:17). I will be careful to teach God’s word accurately (James 3:1). I will pray for those under my spiritual leadership and care (1 Samuel 12:23). I will be accountable to the church that I serve (1 Timothy 5:17-20).

    I have been very impressed and pleased by this series. Am waiting until the final one to send them all to my friends. Will they be put into one place or will we have to click nine times to view the entire series. As laity we also must be accountable for the service to which God calls us. We should also be able to articulate our particular ministry within the church and the community. Well done.
