I Am Only A Man – An Ambassador In Chains – A Slave of God and of Christ
“And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.” (Acts 10:25-26)
I have heard countless believers proclaim with pride and assurance who their pastors were. They expressed trust, love and assurance in the personality that was shepherding them. Some have exalted their pastors to heavenly heights and pay homage to them as if they were gods. And no doubt, they felt justified in their devotion and loyalty to their pastors. But this can become a slippery slope when admiration turns into idol adoration.
Some things belong only to God.
David said it best when he said, “The Lord is my shepherd.”
Who is your shepherd?
