1 Peter 5:2
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.
If we are truly children of God, the Spirit will place instruction on our hearts we need only be diligent in listening and watching, ready to receive that instruction, that direction. When we do receive it we must do all we can to follow, putting our hand to plow and not looking back!
Our fire, our eagerness for the Lord and his work does not need to grow cold it can be rekindled by him each day through fervent prayer, study of his Word, and meditation.
If we are to be his disciples we are responsible for his flock, they are under our care and this should be a joyous love filled work. He has placed His Spirit in us so that we may grow mature in the faith and go out to serve, to go out and be His Shepherds.
