Staying for the Glory of God

In 9Marks’ latest e-journal, Mark Dever speaks to those of us church members, leaders, and pastors who are tempted to leave our churches:

Now consider some things you cannot do in a brief pastorate. You cannot do the funerals of saints you’ve known and loved for years. You cannot comfort those who are in their declining years, having known them in the days of their fuller service to the congregation. You cannot see men you led to Christ getting married, going into the ministry, and becoming fruitful in their own lives and ministries. You cannot see long-term changes in the way a congregation thinks or is structured.

That’s good advice from one godly man who’s lived it.
