~ Serve God Willingly

1Pe 5:1  The elders which are among you I [Peter] exhort, [ I Peter ] who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

1Pe 5:2  [Elders] Feed [be shepherds of ] the flock of God which is among you [under your care], taking the oversight thereof [serving as overseers], not by constraint [not because you must], but willingly; not for filthy lucre [money], but of a ready mind [eager to serve];

1Pe 5:3  Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples [examples] to the flock.

1Pe 5:4  And when the chief Shepherd [Christ] shall appear, ye [elders] shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

1Pe 5:5  Likewise, ye younger [men], submit yourselves unto the elder.  Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth [opposes] the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.  [quoting Pro 3:34 ]

1Pe 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

1Pe 5:7  Casting all your care [anxiety] upon him; for he [God] careth for you.

1Pe 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
[the 4 "names" of Satan are:  Satan, devil, serpent, dragon  ( see Rev 12:9 )]

1Pe 5:9  Whom resist [the devil, standing] stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the [rest of the] world.

1Pe 5:10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his [God's] eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, [God will] make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

1Pe 5:11  To him [God] be glory and dominion for ever and ever.  Amen.

1Pe 5:12  By [with the help of] Silvanus [Silas], a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written [to you] briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.

1Pe 5:13  The church [ congregation ] that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus [Mark] my son.

1Pe 5:14  Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity [love].  Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus.  Amen.
