Pastors should care for the church because they love Jesus and the church belongs to him. This message was given by Pastor Steve DeWitt as part of the Exiles sermon series at Crown Point and was streamed to the Cedar Lake and Hobart/Portage campuses.
1 So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: 2 shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; 3 not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." 1 Peter 5:1 — 1 Peter 5:5 ESV
