Shepherd the Flock

Season 16: Hope & Encouragement

Scripture: 1 Peter 5:1-6 (ESV)


First Peter is a letter written to “God’s elect,” scattered in “Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.” In his final chapter, Peter instructs the elders who are called to “shepherd the flock of God.” The pastoral leaders are to feed, lead, guide, guard, and provide for the believers in their local flock. 

Each of these elders serves the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. When Jesus returns, Peter wants his fellow elders to be found faithful. He urges leaders to cultivate a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and then encourage, lead, and guide the flock in their walks with God. 

This week's song, Savior Like A Shepherd Lead Us, is sung by a musical group from Indonesia. The day is coming when we will worship the Lord with people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We hope you will enjoy listening to the hymn.
