1 Peter 5

1 Peter 5: Feed the Flock of God

                Peter urges his fellow ‘elders’ or the other leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ to be a witness of Christ and to; “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversightthereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre [not for money], but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock [being examples]. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive acrown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1 Peter 5:2-4)

Peter explains that the unselfish acts of the Church Leaders will be rewarded in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Leaders of the Church DO NOT get PAID, rather they do it by sacred calling from God, and do it willingly, FREE.

Peter reminds us of something so simple, yet so true; “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) God loves us, so if we want to be happy we need to just cast our cares upon Him.
