Watchman Daily Devotional, Do You Pray for Your Watchman? It’s Simple to Criticize Their Service, but Would You Want Their Job? They Must Report to the Head Shepherd

1 Peter 5:2-4 2 Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; 3not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

The elders, to whom Peter is speaking, will read his message to the congregation. City elders are always mentioned in the plural in the New Testament. Within each church, there were elders. These soldiers were not to serve because they had to, but rather voluntarily. Leading a congregation has many difficulties. It's not a professional path that was chosen because it calls for exceptional service. It speaks about a life that emulates that of Christ.

Social standing is not a factor in the selection of elders. From a low-income background, some may discover that the support of the believers outweighs the money they make from their companies. While this is usually not the case, they shouldn't serve just of the possibility of receiving more funding. Elders ought to serve because God commands them to, irrespective of their financial situation. The primary goal of an elder ought to be edifying the Lord.

Elders should not exercise their authority in an autocratic way. In every aspect, they ought to lead by example for the flock. When they must enforce discipline, they ought to do so in a kind and loving manner. This life of devotion and sacrifice holds a promise. The faithful will receive an eternal crown of brilliance from the Chief Shepherd.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
