Many times I have shouted from the roof tops how much I love Jim Perdue. I have described my admiration for him as a husband, father, and leader. There are many things that I am thankful for when I start thinking about this wonderful man that God has so richly blessed me with to call my husband. However, this post is about how much I love him as a Pastor, my Pastor. This is one that I am not sure I have ever really put into words. Honestly, I think I take it for granted. Just so you know, I love my husband because he really is a great pastor!
I love him because he is authentic, genuine, real; a man of integrity and humility; sincerely compassionate and incredibly generous. Not only that, he is a great pastor. Being a great pastor takes more than just being a nice guy. He is a really are a great preacher, too.
I love my husband because he is very good at what he does: As the Senior Pastor (CEO), he is a proficient administrator, very knowledgeable with computers and finances. As the Preacher, he is a God honoring and Holy Spirit filled student and communicator of the WORD of God.
It’s a tremendous blessing to be married to a man I can respect and admire, a man who holds the respect of his congregation, his staff, his colleagues, and his family. Lord, help me to show him my love and respect.
