1 Peter Memory Moleskine

Week 16 | 1 Peter 5:1-7

[1] So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed:

[2] shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly;

[3] not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.

[4] And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.

[5] Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

[6] Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,

[7] casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

(1 Peter 5:1-7 ESV)
