1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Pastor's Commentary

Years ago, I learned a valuable lesson during a leadership training course in the Air Force. People are naturally resistant to change. But it becomes a more manageable task when the benefit of the change is explained. When it comes to leadership, knowledge of the change causes followers to embrace and adapt to change.

Now that our church has officially entered the final phase of transition, I pray that we embrace the change. God is doing a new thing, and you have two choices. That is, to resist or adopt. With new leadership come new ways of doing ministry.

But the mission of our new leader will never change. Pastors are called to lead and feed the flock of God. He is a “soul watcher” accountable to God for his shepherd’s care. Therefore, let us make his assignment one of joy.
