In Pastor, Jesus Is Enough, Jeremy Writebol invites pastors to hear the words of the risen Jesus in the seven letters within Revelation 2-3:
- Pastors love Jesus most
- Pastors suffer
- Pastors teach and tell the truth
- Pastors become like Jesus
- Pastors abide in Jesus
- Pastors find their value in Jesus
- Pastors repent
The exhortations in Revelation 2-3 are directed to churches. But they also exhort pastors. In these letters, Jesus draws near to pastors--whether hurting or straying--and reminds them of his sufficiency. In these warnings and promises, Jesus has hard words for pastors. But they are words of life. Most of all, Jesus urges pastors to keep their focus on him.
Being enough is exhausting. But pastor, the good news is that you cannot be enough. Because only Jesus is enough.
