God’s Recipe for a Healthy Church

1 Peter 5:1-5

 

1 Peter 5:1-5

 

God’s recipe for a healthy church:

 

  1. Godly shepherds

 

The Elder’s oversight should be:

  1. Willing
  2. Pure
  3. Exemplary

 

  1. Humble sheep

 

  1. Elders
  2. Young People
  3. Congregation

 

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

 

Why does God oppose the proud?

– Pride is the antithesis of who God is (God is love/agape, ex. Jesus)

– Pride is rebellion against our Maker (i.e. saying we know better)

– Pride is destructive to relationships with others

– Pride is a betrayal of our gospel calling (Mt. 28:18-20)

 

“grace” = charis (kindness, good will, favor, benevolence)

 

Psalm 23

 

Sermon Discussion Questions 

Questions for Reflection:

  1. What are ways that God’s provision thru Godly Leadership has impacted you?
  2. What are areas that you recognize you struggle to be subject with while following Godly Leadership?
