Sermons about Shepherd
Praise God! Harbor will be prayerfully moving forward to see God raise more servant leaders. Today, we consider the office of elder and what it means to be an elder.
Paul was on his way from Philippi to Jerusalem to be there in time for the Feast of Pentecost. The church at Ephesus was dear to his heart. He spent 3 years ministering there and was now passing by, desiring to give a farewell message to the leaders of the church. He knew his time was limited, so he asked them to meet him in Miletus, some 33 miles away. In this third part of a three part series, Paul charges the leaders of the church take heed to themselves, oversee the people of God, feed them with the Word and be vigilant as they keep watch for the enemies that lurk both without and within. This message will challenge those who oversee the people of God in various manners. These are the people Jesus died for. The responsibilities God has given for their care needs to be carried out with vigilance.

Coming to recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd
Pastors are not called to be professionals. They have a higher calling. Shepherds are called to be protectors. Overseers are called to be the stewards of Christ's bride, shepherds of His blood bought sheep. Pastors are called to live with the sheep and die for the sheep for the glory of God and the good of His people.
