Called to Shepherd

 

This morning is a very important and special occasion in the life of the church. We are ordaining and installing elders to serve and to shepherd this congregation. It is visible sign that Jesus is pouring out his gifts on the church. In our text today, Peter is calling the Elders to ‘be shepherds of God’s flock’. In the New Testament we read Jesus talking about us as being His sheep and he as our Shepherd. It is wonderful imagery that Peter picks up as the duty of the Elder. This morning we will pick up the imagery and try and recapture what Peter is saying as an encouragement and a challenge to Elders and to the congregation. It is a humbling thing to be a sheep, but also to be an under-shepherd to Jesus.
