This past Sunday, I ended the message with four thoughts on church Elders. They were based on Paul’s teaching about church leadership in Titus chapter 1. Here are those four statements:
When it comes to your Elders, how he treats his family will inform you how he will help nurture and restore your faith.
When it comes to your Elders, they are held to a higher accountability as stewards of God’s household. Pray for them!
When it comes to your elders, they are to encourage your walk with Jesus, pray for you, and help you carry the load when facing life’s challenges.
When it comes to your Elders, as watchmen they are to gently refute and restore your faith when it comes under attack or when you wander from the faith.
