The “model church” is missing from so many professed churches belonging to the Lord. It’s time to emulate it, not just talk about it.
In the previous lesson of this three part series we saw the need to have more shepherds. In this lesson we look at the need, for those who desire this awesome God-ordained office,for them to be above reproach.
Because the Lord’s church is made up “saved sinners” (admit it, we may strive to live for the Lord, but we are still prone to sin. Rom. 7) the wisdom of God has revealed our need for godly men to serve as Shepherds of the flock. These men won’t live forever and thus our need for more shepherds.

God, being holy, desires for us to partake in His holiness… and the gospel of Jesus Christ reveals God’s great and precious promises that make this possible!
