Scripture describes God’s people as sheep in need of a shepherd, and God has given pastors a special responsibility to care for His flock. In light of Satan’s schemes and the many dangers that face God’s people, pastors must rely on and obey God’s Word in order to care well for God’s people. In this message from 1 Peter 5:1–10, David Platt encourages pastors to shepherd God’s people faithfully. For every follower of Christ, our ultimate hope and security and redemption is found in the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, and Counter Culture.
