Serve God Willingly

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:1 - Therefore, I urge elders among you, as your fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and one who is also a [fn]fellow partaker of the glory that is to be revealed:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:2 - shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not [fn]with greed but with eagerness;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:3 - nor yet as domineering over [fn]those assigned to your care, but by [fn]proving to be [fn]examples to the flock.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:4 - And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading [fn]crown of glory.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:5 - You [fn]younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT HE GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:10 - After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:11 - To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:12 - Through Silvanus, our faithful brother [fn](for so I regard him), I have written to you briefly, [fn]exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it!
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:13 - She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you greetings, and so does my son, Mark.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 5:14 - Greet one another with a kiss of love.
Peace be to you all who are in Christ.
