07/07/13 HON Caring For Your Flock

June 8th, 2013

Today on the Hour One Nugget we go to 1st Peter 5, verses 1-2'

And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you: 2 Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.

David Aldous points out that although this is written to church elders, it applies to each of us since God has entrusted every believer with a 'flock'...even if it is your family or co-workers, it is still your flock to tend. We are to serve God eagerly.

Other scripture references: Matthew 24:11
