The Role of Elders in the Church
1 Peter 5:1–4
Pray for grace through the application of God’s word
Review the message notes
Read verses 1 through 11 of chapter 5
Read 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:6–9. What qualities distinguish elders from the laity?
Which qualities are important for the normal Christian?
How do we grow in those qualities?
How can you grow in those qualities? Take a moment to listen to God to hear how you can be growing as a follower of the Great Shepherd and Overseer of our souls.
Take a moment to petition God for the virtues and attributes in your life that God would want for you.
Pray for each other.
