Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People     Pastor, make sure you are being pastored the entire time you are pastoring others. Seek out a mature and reliable person with whom you can share your heart. Paul David Tripp, ‘Dangerous Calling,’ p.80 Paul Tripp practically cuts to the chase by imploring pastors to humility in submitting themselves to the pastoral care. When Jesus is not in His place as the King of kings, the hierarchy can become a bit bottlenecked, and theo-political chaos ensues. Christian...

  Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People   Is it safe to assume that your pastor is loving his wife, children and extended family? (p. 79) In the last section of chapter 5 under the heading A Better, More Healthy Way, Tripp encourages and gives tips to pastors and the churches they pastor to help care for those pastors families.  Pastors should regularly evaluate and measure their public ministry to others by the health of their personal ministry to his family.  Pastors’ first ministry is to their wives and...

  Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People   “Yet being the man he thought he needed to be, working to be more publicly righteous than he actually was, was exhausting and burdensome.” Page 77 This particular quote by Tripp simply reminds me of how wearisome it is to try and keep up appearances pretending to be someone I’m not.  One of the most challenging aspects of being Christian is living authentically.  So much of our culture subliminally tells us to put up facades and to masquerade as smarter,...

Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People Well we are at the end of our journey as we have been discussing maturity in Christ or holiness.  Last we looked at three areas that describe holiness and attempted to contrast it to legalism.  To recap we said that 1) holiness requires the right motivation, 2) holiness requires a whole person response, and 3) holiness requires faith more than feeling.  As I stated at the beginning of that post these are not exhaustive but do help move toward a better understanding holiness and...

Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People In the previous post I introduced the subject of holiness and contended that Dr. Paul Tripp’s central theme of his book Dangerous Calling was a call to living a holy life before God and what that entails.  I went on to state in a general sense that holiness and legalism are two very different things and to highlight some of the common misconceptions about both.  I pointed out three areas that stood out regarding holiness that we will now unpack.  These are not meant to be...

Counselors Reflect on Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp A Series to Care for the Care Takers of God’s People   “Maturity is a vertical thing that will have a wide variety of horizontal expressions.  Maturity is about relationship to God that results in wise and humble living (p. 64).” I decided to make this a two-part (or maybe three, we’ll see) post on a subject that as I began writing realized that it was taking on a life of its own and would not allow me to confine it to one post.  The more I wrote the more I saw that needed to be fleshed out that one blog would not be...
