Scripture of the Day - August 7, 2012

Ezekiel 3:19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

A pastor must give an account for his flock. He is responsible for teaching the right way and correcting those who go astray, but he is not responsible for those who refuse to listen. All we can do is teach God's way and live it. We cannot force others to comply and we are not responsible for their response to God. God will deal with those who reject Him and His ways. That being said, the man of God MUST warn the people and MUST spread the gospel, if he doesn't then he is responsible for their souls... 18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. What a heavy responsibility. Folks we need to pray for our pastors and ministers. Their souls are on the line too, maybe more so.
