Fear of God Devotional: The Responsibilities of a Pastor and the Congregation

What are the responsibilities of a pastor and the congregation?

Jeff Pollard explains in this video that pastors and elders are appointed by God to administer His Word to His people. They are shepherds of the church. It is vital for them to preach faithfully and strive to live godly and holy lives. 

The responsibility of the members of the church is to take the Word preached, to be Bereans, and to apply the truths of Scripture to their lives. They must obey Christ and walk according to the Word of God. 

Acts 20:28 (NKJV) – “Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.”
