The Sincere Cry of Many Fatherless!


This is a word from one of my leaders, brother and friend: Mr. Nelson Pacheco:

I heard somewhere that a leader in the world is He who is served by many, but that the leader in the church is He who serves many. Paul stated that it is the will of God that the father will treasure for his son, and not the son for the father. God called Moses for the people of Israel not the other way around. Last time I check a shepherd don’t lead his sheeps by going in front of them but by coming after them from behind. For there is something foundationally wrong in the new testament church about leadership. In my humble opinion (may God have mercy on my soul) the problem lays upon our definition of ministry.  Neh. 2:10 “But when Sambalat the Horanite, Tobias the amonite official heard of it they were deeply disturbed that a man had come (not to build the wall) but to seek the good of the people of Israel”; 2 Timothy 2:10 “For I endure all things for the sake of THE ELECT, so that they can obtain the salvation which is Christ Jesus with eternal glory”. My point: In the work of the ministry the key is not How much you love God, but How much you love people! It’s not about the call, it’s not about the vision, it’s not about the ministry, it’s not about success and it’s not about reputation. It is about loving what God loves the most… people. For God loves people more than anything. By the way; God has call upon us not to be successful but to be faithful (Mother Teresa). I don’t know about leaders. But this I know, I have been fatherless since I was nine. Godly loving fathers we need. I hope there is one out there who can pastor me.

  1. We can’t minimize Pacheco’s cry. That is the cry of many of us. We have a crisis in the Body of Christ; we have too many fatherless. So many titles of Apostles with no spiritual children. However, I am encouraged because Malachi 4:5-6 tells me:

    “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
    Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
    And he will turn
    the hearts of the fathers to the children,
    And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
    Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
