“As Peter travelled about the country, he went to visit the saints in Lydda.”
With no introduction Peter is back on the scene.
And what is he doing?
The leading apostle at that time is not too big to visit the saints.
He is not too burdened by the pressures of leadership to prevent him going to the saints.
He is not so focused on the lost he doesn’t have time to visit the found.
Saints need visiting.
Saints need attention.
They need encouragement.
This is the norm.
Shepherds go to the sheep.
Christ the Great Shepherd visited.
The Christian ministry is not solely about growth, but it is about consolidating what has grown.
In short leaders who are called Pastor need to pastor. That has to be the expectation. That has to be the right thing to do with no exception or justification for not doing so.
