Three Mighty Men…

Just had one of those “WOW!” moments this morning. I get the Leadership Weekly e-mail from Christianity Today. This sentence got my attention…

Why is it you never hear from a pulpit committee when you need one?

I went on and read the story Ted Traylor tells about his three mighty men who, like David’s mighty men, went back to the hometown well, got some water, and refreshed their leader’s soul.

Check out what one of those guys said to their pastor…

“We have talked about this all day�six hours up and six hours back,” the largest man said as he stuck out his hand to grasp mine, “and we want to make this statement to you: We will die for our pastor. We will die for you. If you stay straight and be moral and be ethical and be biblical, we will die for you. If you are immoral and unethical and unbiblical, we will kill you.” (Now that’s a deacon!)

We all need some “mighty men” (and wieldy women!) who will stand by our side, not because of who we are, but because of Whom they serve. Do you have some “friends indeed?”

Oh, here’s the link to the whole story…
