1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 5:12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to give recognition to those who are working among you and leading you in the Lord and admonishing you,
1 Thessalonians 5:13 and to regard them very highly in care because of their achievement. Be at peace among yourselves.

special ministry leaders

The New Testament teaches the priesthood of all believers, but it is not silent about the people called to special ministry within the congregation. They work among the believers as equals, but have special spiritual gifts which enable them to lead the believers, and admonish those who are lagging behind or failing in some way.

For these front-line leaders, Paul urges the believers to recognize their service, and to regard them highly in care because of what they are achieving.

Lord, thank you for our special ministry leaders.
