Gospel-Centered Leadership In The Church (1 Peter 5:1-5) (1 Peter 5:1-5)

Tim Cain, January 7, 2017
Part of the 1 Peter - Joy In Suffering series, preached at a Saturday Evening service

Authority is something that all of us struggle with. We struggle to follow people when we don't agree with them. In 1 Peter 5:1-5, Peter tells us that the Gospel changes the way we lead, and the way that we follow our leaders. Listen and hear how the Gospel does this, and what it would look like if all us would clothe ourselves in humility towards one another.

1 Peter 5:1-5

5:1 So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (ESV)
