We will be taking a break from our study of the book of Romans to consider the Biblical instruction regarding elders. Our text will be 1 Peter 5: 1-5. We will see how the ministry of elders is founded on the work of Christ and carried on in the church by those called to be his “Under-shepherds.”
We will consider these four points from the text:
1. The elder and his work.
2. The manner in which he is to do it.
3. The reward he is to seek.
4. The responsibility of the congregation towards him.
