To the Elders and the Flock

February 1, 2015 Speaker: Series: 1 Peter: The True Grace of God for the Real Issues of Life

Topic: Elders Passage: 1 Peter 5:1–5:5

Executive Pastor, Curtis Froisland, teaches from 1 Peter 5:1-4, "To the Elders and the Flock." Elders are God’s provision for the suffering church, therefore elders must be selfless, the flock must be faithful, and all must be humble.

1 Peter 5:1-4 (ESV)
Shepherd the Flock of God 
5 So 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: 2 shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you;[b] not for shameful gain, but eagerly; 3 not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
