There’s a lot going on for pastors these days. A single congregation represents so many needs. Various topics need addressed. And any given truth can be taken the wrong way by different people. How can we tell when we are doing our job as pastors? For Gary Fraley, the conclusion the Lord gave him was to ask himself a simple question: Am I preaching the Word? Amidst the other things that clamor to provide validation, what a difference it makes to know that God is using us to bring the living Word to bear on the sufferings of His church. It is enough for peace and it is enough for joy. It will probably cost us but it will be absolutely worth it.
