The One Thing Due Every Minister

On January 27, 1854 Charles Spurgeon accepted a call to be the pastor of the New Park Street Baptist Church in London. In his acceptance letter Spurgeon wrote the following about what every church owes their pastor.

…And now one thing is due to ever minister, and I pray you to remind the church of it, namely, that in private, as well as in public, they must all earnestly wrestle in prayer to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, that I may be sustained in the great work.

The relationship between a pastor and his church is a beautiful weaving together of two hearts, which is only made possible through prayer. I know from personal experience that the one thing I need from the good people of Cool Community Church is what Spurgeon requests here from the New Park Street church, that they would labor in prayer on my behalf.
