1 Peter 5: 1-10


What have we learnt so far?

We are almost finishing the first letter of Peter.



He wrote to all the churches around the world at that time

1 Peter 1: 1

But also to all the churches around the world today



So Peter encouraged them

By reminding them that God called them to be their children.





He also wrote to the husbands and wives to guide them in their new life as Christian’s families.

1 Peter 3: 1-7



Peter also encouraged them not to spend their new lives they have, doing the same things they used to do in the past when they were not Christians.

1 Peter 4


And also not to be surprised if for doing something good they suffered, because Christ suffered for us too.

1 Peter 4: 12-22




1. To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed:


2. Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;



4. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.


5. In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because


“God opposes the proud to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because   but shows favor to the humble.




8. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.


9. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings


10. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast

This is the same Jesus had told Peter in 1 John 22 : 15-17


Peter was passing on the same teaching he received. watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;

We should do the same!! Pass on to others the teaching we have received.

What does it mean watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing,

not pursuing dishonest gain?


It means to worry about the things you can give, rather than the things you can gain from your service to the Lord.



“…Is this the time to take money, or to accept clothes, olive groves, vineyards, flocks, herds or menservants and maidservants?

Naaman’s leprosy will cling to you and to your descendants for ever. 2 Kings 5: 26-27


Also remember the warning written in Galatians 6:7 olive groves, vineyards, flocks, herds or menservants and maidservants?

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.



3. not lording it over examples to the flock

It means, do not pretend to be the boss of the church. Serve the people out of love.

It means, show the people how to live according to God’s word

God is the only one who can lift up your life. But He can also bring you down if you let pride control your heart.
