Do You Know Who A Shepherd Is?

August 17, 2022 / Odunmbaku James / Church Build-up / 3 Comments »

In Celestial Church of Christ, we often term the word shepherd with another meaning which is confusing to many upcoming shepherds in the church nowadays. A shepherd is simply someone who shepherds or cares for God’s flock

God’s plan for leadership in the church is shepherds caring for His flock. The shepherd is someone committed to knowing you, feeding you, leading you, and protecting you.

In other nominations today they typically call them pastors but in Celestial church of Christ, we call them shepherds. These shepherds are to be men who will know you, feed you, lead you, and protect you as their sheep as said earlier.

How many shepherds in Celestial Church today ask after their members when they’re not present for service, how many? Only a few, because most shepherds are not observant to know and watch their flocks.

How many members can really comment on the good behavior of their shepherds? Not much because they’re not familiar with their shepherds and the way their shepherds act, they can’t predict him.

There few qualities of a good shepherd that made most shepherds excel in leading their sheep in their various parishes. This is who a shepherd is and how a shepherd shepherds.

  1. A Good Shepherd takes time to listen to people, learns as many of their names as possible, and takes a keen interest in their everyday activities.
  2. Comforts sheep when they are hurt or fearful.
  3. The heart of a shepherd must be driven by a sincere love for God and a selfless love for others.
  4. A good shepherd nurture and protects.
  5. Good shepherds lead with truth and compassion.

Being a shepherd has never been a personal work or jobs but a spiritual duty for Christ and His Sheep.

Now, do you know your Shepherd?
