Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
Are you a soul shepherd? Do you have a wife to lead, children to raise, a ministry to oversee, employees to guide, or a classroom to teach? If you are not actively shepherding now, you will in the future. So a better question would be:
"Are you a good shepherd?"
Looking to our Good Shepherd we see that Jesus does more than put a roof over our heads and bread on the table. Our Good Shepherd restores our soul. Further, our Good Shepherd will use willing servants to shepherd his other sheep. Husbands will wash their wives with the water of the Word, fathers will raise their children in the fear and instruction of the Lord, and church leaders will keep watch over souls.
All men, sooner or later will do the work of a soul shepherd. When that day comes what will you do? Will you seek the wisdom of Dr. Phil, a self help book, or the local therapist? Or will you open the Word and minister the healing elixir of truth?
Join us on January 23rd, 2016, where we will seek to train you to become soul shepherds.
