How to Have a Good Day
"The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you..." 1 Peter 5:1-2a
It is often the case when we are looking to appoint elders in the church, or even when we talk about their role, we turn our Bibles to 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. While these passages certainly address the characteristics the elders of a local congregation must have, we don't always give as much attention to other passages such as Acts 20:28-31 and 1 Peter 5:1-4 for example, that have more to say about the role of an elder resulting in doing ourselves a dis-service by not considering the whole counsel of God on the matter.
