To Glorify God and Enjoy Him Forever
Sunday 17/10/2021 @ 11:30 am / 1 Peter 5:1-5 : Honouring
This week we look closely at the roles the elders play in our congregation from 1 Peter 5:1-5.
The audio disappeared at the end of the service so here are the application points:
Respect your pastors by being attentive to their teaching and by refusing to participate in rumours and backbiting. Receive the word of God humbly. Do what you can to end gossip directed at leaders.
Love your elders by doing something kind for them
Think of nice ways to encourage and bless those who lead the church.
Express your thankfulness for your elders by offering words of encouragement
Be consistent and thoughtful in your gratitude to God for them. Send an email or a card, the more specific the better in your encouragement.
Be a joy to pastor by doing the little things well.
Some of these things involve showing up, volunteering to serve, encouraging, avoid goodie, generous, joyful attitude.
Pray for your elders and their families.
The greatest blessing is to hear that families pray together for families. The nicest blessing was hearing a 9 year old pray for me before I preached one evening.
Who We Are
We are a community of people from different places and backgrounds who gather around Jesus Christ.
We believe that He rescues people from the emptiness of life and invites them to live life to the full.
We are not perfect, we struggle like everyone else, but we are committed to learning from Jesus how to live the life He has given and we are excited about becoming more like Him.
