Easter is for Pastors Too!

I want to remind you that in this busy Easter season, it’s important that you take time to nourish your own relationship with God.

As pastors, we probably give more of ourselves during the months before and the weeks after Easter than at any other time of the year, and rightfully so. The resurrection power is still drawing people to Christ and drawing Christ’s people to Himself. For us, Easter is like the busy season of farming. Give it all we got now with great expectation of future harvest.

The balance is to also realize that Easter is for Pastors too. God wants you to grow this Easter. God wants to give you an even deeper understanding of the cross, the resurrection, and His atoning work in the world.

So with all that in mind, I encourage you to find your own way to reflect and grow close to God this Easter.

Your partner in ministry,
