Spreading God's Word

“Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory” (1 Peter 5:1-4).


Elders, shepherds, pastors, overseers, presbyters, bishops – whichever biblical name we use to describe these brothers – we are talking about an important part of God’s plan for the local church. The above verses tell us this role of guidance is reserved for mature men who have learned control and submission to God. They have demonstrated their ability by raising submissive children and managing their household well. They are men who are willing to teach and feed the sheep of the congregation.
