Schaeffer: confidence in pastor or God?

Sunday, September 17, 2017
    Feast of St. Hildegard, Abbess of Bingen, Visionary, 1179
    For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
    —1 Corinthians 3:4-6 (KJV)
    You must not lose confidence in God because you lost confidence in your pastor... If our confidence in God had to depend upon our confidence in any human person, we would be on shifting sand.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Letters of Francis A. Schaeffer: Spiritual Reality in the Personal Christian, Good News Publishers, 1986, p. 142 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:4-6; Ps. 146:3; Matt. 7:24-27; Luke 6:47-49; Acts 14:11-15; Rom. 8:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I pray for my pastor.
