So, why have I been writing about Elders? First, because it is an important Biblical subject about which we need to be reminded. Second, so every male will hopefully set being an Elder as a goal for their spiritual life. Not everyone will reach the goal, but it is a good goal all the same.
The qualifications for Elders are found in two places in the New Testament, 1 Tim. 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Other than being married and having faithful children, all the other qualities should be those of every Christian man. So every Christian man should be preparing to be an Elder whether they become one or not.
As important as Elders are in Christ's church, there is a shortage of qualified men to serve. So, men need to wake up and work toward the goal of Elder. And. the women need to be encouraging them.
