1 Peter 5

Wow!  This chapter has so many truths.  Please read it slowly, and let the Holy Spirit speak to you.

“Feed the flock of God which is among you”

That’s the first sentence of verse 2 from the KJV.  This verse always reminds me of Pastor John Osteen. He was my pastor in the early 80's.  Pastor Osteen would always say, “We feed the sheep.  We don’t beat the sheep!”  This is such a great truth!  Church should be a place where we are spiritually fed and encouraged. Sometimes church should also challenge us to live Godly and avoid sin. We don’t “beat the sheep” even then.  A pastor should lead, feed and guide!  Pastor Osteen led thousands and thousands to the Lord.  He did this primarily with preaching the “Good News” of the Gospel. I never saw a angry spirit on him. I guess that’s why he was known as a Pastor of Pastors.
