DITC e-Newsletter
Volume 29, Issue 1
Dear All,

This issue of the DITC e-Newsletter is comprised of four older articles I wrote about the role of Christian leadership.  Yet they are as relevant as ever.  Overseers are not only called to teach but to watch over God's flock.  The question is: are you a good under shepherd or a hireling?  Don't go to sleep when the Bible says you must remain awake and alert.

1Pe 5:8  Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Eze 33:6  But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'
Acts 20:28  Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.

Heresy is everywhere today and the wolves who promote it need to be avoided.

Ro 16:17  I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.

The Responsibilities Of A Good Shepherd
by Sandy Simpson, 5/20/05ACT Logo 2
 
Those who are called to be servant under shepherds in the body of Christ must take that responsibility seriously.  There are far too many who claim to be called to servant leadership, but demonstrate clearly that they are not qualified to be shepherds according to God's criteria.  We need to be feeding the lambs and the sheep, bringing them to good pasture lands and water, grooming and clipping them, delivering new lambs, leading them and teaching them to stay together, going off after the wandering lost ones, and protecting the sheep in the field and in the fold.

Servant Authority
by Sandy Simpson, 10/99ACT Logo 2

The church does not have the same system as the world. No lords, no kings, no dictators. Our only King, Lord and Master is Jesus Christ. The rest of us are servants -- slaves."

The Overseer - A Study In Titus 1:6-11
by Sandy Simpson, 6/25/04ACT Logo 2

There once was a shepherd who loved his flock of sheep.  He fed them and watered them.  He bathed them and tended to their hurts.  The only trouble is he did not build a protected fence around their home.  He had a habit of going to sleep at night leaving no one to guard them.  They had always been safe in the past, but one night wolves came.  In the morning when he woke up many of the sheep were missing or dead.  That day he built a fence and made sure there was always someone there to guard the sheep at night.
