Do your work, not for mere pay, but for a real desire to serve. Do not try to rule over those who have been put in your care, but be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the glorious crown which will never lose its brightness.
In the same way you younger people must submit yourselves to your elders. And all of you must put on the apron of humility, to serve one another; for the Scripture says, “God resists the proud, but shows favour to the humble.
Humble yourselves then, under God’s mighty hand, so that He will lift you up in His own good time. Leave all your worries with Him, because He cares for you.
Be alert, watch out! Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Be firm in your faith and resist him, because you know that other believers in all the world are going through the same kind of sufferings.”
*Thankyou Holy Spirit for me, and (any of your family members names), to be in compliance to do His will, according to (1 Peter 5:10-11) “But after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who calls you to share His eternal glory in union with Christ, will Himself perfect you and give you firmness, strength and a sure foundation. To Him be the power for ever, Amen!”
