Serve God Willingly

1 1Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your 2fellow elder and 3witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a 4partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed,
2 shepherd 5the flock of God among you, exercising oversight 6not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and 7not for sordid gain, but with eagerness;
3 nor yet as 8lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be 9examples to the flock.
4 And when the Chief 10Shepherd appears, you will receive the 11unfading 12crown of glory.
