Some people ask me “Why do you want to be pastor?" It has to be for the sake of the gospel, to give people the comfort in knowing what Jesus has done for them. My professor once told me, “Sometimes we cry for the sake of the gospel.” I experienced that first hand as my mother won her battle with cancer and was called to heaven. Shortly after, a member in my congregation was battling cancer and he had two kids. They were in 8th and 9th grade. I was able to share the comfort I had received in knowing Christ and how he died and took away our sins so that we could be with him forever.
