Advice for Elders and Young Men

5And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you.G4245G1722G5213G3870G3588G4850G2532G3144G3804G5547G2532G2844G1391G3195G601 2Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.G4165G4168G2316G1722G5213G1983G3361G317G235G1596G3366G147G235G4290 3Don't lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example.G3366G5613G2634G2819G235G1096G5179G4168 4And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor.G2532G750G5319G2865G4735G1391G262 5In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for "God opposes the proud but favors the humble."G3668G3501G5293G4245G1161G3956G5293G240G1463G5012G3754G2316G498G5244G1161G1325G5485G5011 6So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.G5013G3767G5259G2900G5495G2316G2443G5312G5209G1722G2540 7Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.G1977G3956G5216G3308G1909G846G3754G846G3199G4012G5216 8Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.G3525G1127G3754G5216G476G1228G5613G5612G3023G4043G2212G5101G2666 9Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.G3739G436G4731G4102G1492G846G3804G2005G5216G81G1722G2889 10In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.G1161G2316G3956G5485G3588G2564G2248G1519G846G166G1391G1722G5547G2424G3958G3641G846G2675G5209G2675G4741G4599G2311 11All power to him forever! Amen.G846G1391G2532G2904G1519G165G165G281
