The Power of Support

Acts 9:25

Paul’s followers, followers of Jesus, cared for his very life by holding the ropes that led him to safety.  In this same manner, the church supports its pastoral staff by holding the ropes.  In some cases, the church may also need to make a strong basket to support the weightiness of the pastor’s needs, in particular regarding their mental health.  It is not unrealistic for the church to hold the pastor to standards for emotional and spiritual health.
