Today, I had an HWA family member contact me, and just say that they would cry with me and stand with me in prayer for something. I can't even begin to say how much that means to this wife of a pastor. To know that people within your congregation have as much care for you...as you have for them.
I found this blog article that I thought was good...even though just directed mainly toward the man of God instead of also to the woman of God called by his side. http://www.victorious.org/blesspastor.htm If you want to see victory, growth, and blessing within your church and your own life, these are the three main things I would say to do: 1.) pray for your pastor and His wife, and stand with them. Don't just make suggestions about what can be done to sustain and grow those within and without the church... but back it up with helpful action in line with the vision of the pastoral team. 2.) Grab onto the vision that God has placed before your pastors...and help them to run with it. 3.)...and most of all, testify publicly to what God has done and is doing for you at your church. It glorifies God...and it encourages your pastor. Be a blessing!
“And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake...” (1 Thes 5:12-13)
