Pastors often deal with discouragement on a weekly—or even daily—basis. Today we discuss how to fight ten sources of pastoral discouragement.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • Very few (if any) pastors have only pastored churches that have done nothing but grow while they were the pastor.
  • There will be resistance to change in any organization or church.

The ten sources of discouragement we discuss are:

  1. Conflict and criticism from church members.
  2. Members leaving the church.
  3. Church decline.
  4. Staff conflict.
  5. Family pressures.
  6. Members who are resistant to change.
  7. Personal financial pressures.
  8. The comparison factor.
  9. Church financial pressures.
  10. Facility challenges.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
