Oversight, Not Undersight
1 Peter 5:1-2; Hebrews 13:7

1 Peter 5:2 "Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind"" There are people who have the oversight of God's people in the house of God. Though these individuals are members of the Body of Christ, yet they are positioned by the Lord in such a way that they have the oversight of God’s people. Notice that it is oversight not undersight nor is it equal-sight. This implies that they are positioned above you, not under you or beside you. Hebrews 13:7, 17 show us that there are people who have the rule over us. Beloved, this is something worth giving attention to. Some believers think that we are all equal in church. But this is not what the Scripture teaches; it is true that we are equal in fellowship and have equal access in the faith, but we are not equal in authority, nor are we equal in grace. There are people who have been set over us by Divine designation and appointment. 1 Corinthians 12:28 says "God has set some in the church…"" Notice that in 1 Peter 5, the apostle Peter was writing to the elders in the church. There are elders in the church. Who are elders? Elders are not necessarily old men or women in church; they are individuals in church who have come up unto leadership in the Body by virtue of their walk with God and the grace of God upon their lives. They may be old or they may be young, their age is not the subject of consideration. Aaron and Miriam were older than Moses yet the Lord made him a leader over them, and even when they attempted despising his leadership, the Lord rebuked them sternly for it (Exodus 2; Numbers 12). Beloved, age has nothing to do with divine authority. Be careful to know those who are over you in the Lord as the Scripture admonishes and give them the honour that is due them. This is one way to keep yourself continually covered, and it is also a sure way to walk in honour all the days of your life.

Other Scriptures for Meditation: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; Hebrews 13:17

My Solid Front (Confession)
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, I declare that I know those who have been set over and who have the rule over me in the Lord, and I submit myself to them as to the Lord. Amen.
