12/6/12 Daily Devotion

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.

The Bible makes reference to several different types of shepherds, all of whom are very important. One of these refers to shepherds as the leaders of the local church. The leaders are called to shepherd the flock along the path of God. Without this occurring, the church is more susceptible to traveling down the wrong path. The leaders must exhibit Godly qualities within their lives and cause them to be absorbed by the congregation. Shepherds are important, for without them the flock goes astray, but with them it glorifies God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, use me as a guide within the church. Use me to clarify Your path.
