“We’re living in an era of history where it’s unpopular to call out the wolves and warn God’s people of error and danger. That work is often viewed as insensitive, mean-spirited, and rude. In order to be a popular pastor in our day, you must be engaging in your personality, willing to entertain people, and always be positive. Interestingly enough, that might work in the world of insurance sales, but it doesn’t pass muster when it comes to the calling of a pastor.”
(Josh Buice – Delivered By Grace) Paul loved the church of Jesus Christ. Undoubtedly he gave his time, energy, and life’s blood in order to preach the gospel of King Jesus, plant churches far and wide, and contend for the faith once delivered to the saints….
Therefore, when Paul speaks a warning about twisted teachers who would war against God’s people—we must pay close attention.
In Acts 20:28-30, we find Paul in the midst of a passionate address to a group of fellow elders who served the church at Ephesus. Paul had served alongside them and ministered with them. However, he’s preparing to depart and continue his work of pioneer missions as God had directed him, but before he began his journey, he addressed the men he loved regarding their responsibility as overseers of a local church he loved.
