1 Peter 5

Click For Today’s Audio


Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly;

– 1 Peter 5:2

These metaphors have been ussed since before the church existed, and they provide a helpful illustration of what the work of the pastor is to be. The pastor is to willingly and lovingly shepherd (tend, feed and care fore) the church (the flock) of God. If an individual cannot do this, they cannot be a pastor.
