1 Peter: Elder, Shepherd, Overseer
Who is supposed to lead the local church? In our generation Christians are revisiting this question and returning to a Biblical Eldership. Peter has much to say to elders as a fellow-elder... and much to say to all of us about how Christ's church is to be governed.
Sermon discussion questions for parents to use with their children:
Why did God appoint elders for the church?
What did Peter tell the elders they were and were not supposed to do?
How are we supposed to relate to the elders?
Why are they important on our pilgrimage to heaven?
How are we supposed to treat each other according to this text?
