“Blessings to our Cell Group Leaders for 2018”

 

After planting a small pioneering church, I poured out all my passion and zeal for the growth of that church. I had a dream and conviction that the church would grow big and flourish better than any existing churches. Also, I firmly believed that all my efforts and hard work would result in the growth of church and successful ministry for me.

 

My conviction was based on my philosophy about the role of a pastor in the church, which I had carried ever since my seminary school days. I had thought the Lord was the shepherd in the church and the congregation was His flock of sheep, and the role of a pastor was to be the shepherd dog; He should run along and bark to guide the flock.

 

For three years I worked very hard at all hours for the newly planted church and I was happy in my role of the shepherd dog to help the Lord and His sheep, the congregation. But, in the fourth year, I had a medical emergency and went through a big surgery. During the long convalescence, I questioned myself over and over; Something is not right. I have given my best to be a good shepherd dog, but what went wrong?

 

Then, when I was meditating on chapter 5 of ‘1 Peter’, I burst out crying on reading the verse 4; “And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.” Previously I didn’t regard myself as the shepherd, but thought I was supposed to do the job of a shepherd dog. This Bible verse has helped me to realize that the Lord is our Chief Shepherd and I am the shepherd.

 

Today is the dedication Sunday of our Cell Group Leaders. Since 2016, our church has been served by 12 Parishes and 80 Cell Groups. Each Cell Groups Leader is the shepherd of a small church, as our Senior Pastor has always emphasized, and the shepherds have the promise of ‘the crown of glory’ (1 Peter 5:4) which is the biggest reward in heaven. I want to share the advices from ‘1 Peter 5:2-3’ with our Cell Group Leaders; “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.”

 

Our Lord, who is the Chief Shepherd, has prepared ‘the crown of glory that will never fade away’ for our 80 Cell Group Leaders. We are thankful for your devoted services in the past and in the new year of 2018. I want to urge our church members to pray for them and give encouragements to them!
