Rise Up O Men Of God And Lead


rise up on men of God AND LEAD

This saying is trustworthy,

“If anyone aspires to be an elder, he desires an noble task.” (1 Timothy 3:1)

In these perilous times, the church, more than ever, needs men who will pursue the eldership, driven by a strong heart-desire to faithfully pastor God’s people. An elder is not a CEO, he is a shepherd; a man who tirelessly watches over the flock, feeding and caring for each soul. No doubt, it is a difficult task, but a sacred one nonetheless. Fierce wolves are at hand, and they will not spare the flock. So, Rise up, O men of God, The church for you doth wait, Her strength unequal to her task; Rise up and make her great!

  1. Can I ask where you got that rise up and lead graphic? That would be awesome for the shirts I want to make for my mens group

      1. I was going to ask the same thing. Would i have your permission to use the graphic for t shirts? Not for sale. They will be given to men at my church.
