A pastor has many roles and responsibilities, but he must not lose sight of his one ultimate goal: the sanctification of God's people. It's the heart of God's purpose for Christians.
John MacArthur calls pastors to keep in mind what all the countless hours preparing sermons, visiting hospitals, counseling, conducting weddings, and more are all about, even when the finish line seems so far out that you're thinking of giving up. He encourages pastors with the power God gives them to place the sanctification of God's people at the core of their ministry.
