Daily Bible Reading: 1 Peter 5
Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 5:1 – 4 – “he elders therefore among you I exhort, who am a fellow-elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, who am also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Tend the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not of constraint, but willingly, according to the will of God; nor yet for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall be manifested, ye shall receive the crown of glory that fadeth not away.”
Today, the verses speak to Pastors and Spiritual Leaders. We need to heed God’s challenge and warning. Also, we can be blessed in a great way.
If you are not a Pastor or Spiritual Leader, your task is to pray for your leaders. They hold a great responsibility before God, and to those are given much, much is required.
Prayer: Jesus, we pause today to pray for Your leaders in the church. Put a hedge of protection around them, and bless them today.
