Every pastor has days when they don’t want to do the ministry set before them. This lack of desire can lead to guilt, worries about faithlessness, and deep confusion over the feeling of separation between head and heart. In this episode of The Art of Pastoring, Jared Wilson and Ronnie Martin discuss what it’s like to preach, counsel, and disciple when energy or passion run low. And they remind one another that the Lord works in spite of our weakness to minister to his church.
