Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.
– Hebrews 13:17
Those that serve as ministers within the Body of Christ watch out for our souls, and will give an account to God for how they have stewarded the work of shepherding His flock. This being the case, the author of Hebrews exhorts that we submit to their leadership, and seek to make their service for God a joyful one.
