Like the authority structure God has established for the home, He has also designed a leadership structure in the local church. Alistair Begg helps us to understand biblical church leadership in terms of the activity of the leaders and the attitude of the members. God’s design brings about harmony within the church so that the children of God will remain faithful and live to please Him.
12We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
