Today we will resume our series in Hebrews as we consider our responsibility to our church leaders, and their responsibility to us. Our author is concerned that his readers are being led away from the unchanging gospel of Christ which has been proclaimed by their past and present leaders. He encourages them to imitate the example of their faithful leaders and to obey them.
Problems with false doctrine and church leadership were not limited to the first century. We continue to have wolves among the shepherds, and rebellious sheep. Thankfully, the Lord has revealed how undershepherds are to emulate the Chief Shepherd in caring for the flock of God. Pray for us!
