Shepherding God's Flock

From Series: Standing Firm in Shaky Times, Volume 3

1 Peter 5:1-4  (ID: 1503)

What should leadership look like in the Church? Peter points out an Old Testament pattern as well as a New Testament practice in helping Christians understand the role of servant leadership in the Church. Turning to the establishment of elders in Exodus 18 as the pattern, Alistair Begg teaches the responsibility of elders as described by Peter. As God carries out His rule through leadership, some are to be responsible for the leadership of others, but all are responsible to Jesus Christ and His Word.


Shepherd the Flock of God

1So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed:
