Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. (1 Peter 3:5)


As previously stated, the leaders of other religion seek after reigning over the believers. They regard having the authority of their God as a duty and exercise the authority to the followers. It is so frustrating that this situation takes place in the churches of the Lord. The Bible teaches us clearly that the leaders of churches must not be lords over God’s heritage.


It is so distressing that many people take the stratification in churches for granted. For sure, these states occurred in the first generation churches, too. The Bible makes mention of Nicola tans and encourage not allowing their activity in churches. In other words, it said that churches have to keep watch being lords over God’s heritage and to be separated from them if the church already full of yeast.


A church is like a family. Nobody distinguish between high and low in family. They love each other and try to make a beautiful home. It is important that there is no structure of class but suitable order in a family. Like this, the church of the Lord is never over each other but has some order. When the church of the Lord devote mutually, we can see the most beautiful image.


The Bible says ‘Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.’ We must make an approach to this problem cautiously. Some leaders demand believers to respect them with the words of God. It seems like a truth, but it isn’t. Esteem comes from the bottom not from the upside. It means that true esteem can be hold when watch the action of the leader and express respect spontaneously. The leaders of churches must be such a person and live a life of being ensamples to the flock by themselves not for respect.
