As I continue to observe in our culture the fallen and decline of influential (Evangelical) pastors and ministers to sexual sin and greed (i.e. money, wealth), one of my greatest fears as a pastor is not to bring shame to the Gospel and more importantly to not belittle the preciousness and the glorious worth of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord, through my actions.
O Lord, keep me near the cross!
Help me to pursue what you desire.
Grant me the passion to hunger more after Thee!
