August 4, 2013: God's Under-Shepherds

1 Peter Series message 26

Text: 1 Peter 5:1-4

Peter has just told us that judgement begins in the household of God; we referenced two OT passages in which the elders were held to account.  Peter appeals to his fellow elders to correctly understand their role in the church and serve with honorable motives.  This passage informs elders of their calling and shows the flock what to expect of their leaders.
