10 WARNINGS TO CHURCH LEADERS - BE CAREFUL ABOUT YOURSELF

1. WE MUST WATCH OVER OUR OWN LIFE AND DOCTRINE SO WE CAN SAVE OURSELVES AND THOSE WHO HEAR US.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

1 TIMOTHY 4:16

PROVERBS 4:23

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

MINISTRY THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM THE LORD.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

ACTS 20:28

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of

God, which he bought with his own blood.

COLOSSIANS 4:17

Tell Archippus: “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.”

3. WE MUST RUN OUR RACE IN SUCH A WAY THAT WE CAN WIN THE PRIZE. WE SHOULD HAVE CONTROL OVER OURSELVES SO THAT AFTER

PREACHING TO OTHERS , WE OURSELVES DO NOT DISQUALIFIED

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

1 CORINTHIANS 9:24-27

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to

get a crown that will last forever.

Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be

disqualified for the prize.

4. WE MUST FULFILL THE MINISTRY THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US WITH A HEART TO SERVE AND NOT WITH ANY GREED FOR WEALTH OR AUTHORITY

OVER PEOPLE. WE SHOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO THE FLOCK

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

1 PETER 5:2-4

Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as

God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;

not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

5. WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THOSE WHO TEACH OTHERS WILL BE JUDGED MORE STRICTLY. WE MUST PRACTISE WHAT WE PREACH.

JAMES 3:1

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?

You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?
