The support of the elders

Learn to trust Christian elders. The elders in the christian congregation can be a great source of help. These mature men are educated in God's word and experienced in the application of it's  principles. 


They can prove to be " like a hiding place from the wind and a place of concealment from the rain storm, live streams of water in a water less country, like the shadow of a heavy crag in an exhausted land. " 


(Isaiah 32:2) not only do Christians elders protect the congregation as a whole from harmful influences but they also comfort, refresh, and take a personal interest in individuals who have problems. Take full advantage of their help. 


"The spirit of a man can put with his malady, says a bible proverb, " but as for a stricken spirit, who can bear it?" (Proverbs 18:14) Trauma call afflict the spirit of a family as well as a spirit of a man. Yet" a calm heart is the life of the fleshly organism.Trust and obey and you will prosper God is your source. 


Therefore if any man be in Christ, be is a new creature, old things are become new. 


Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
