OVERSEER

 

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.                                                                                                                             ACTS 20:28

Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and beacons.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 PHILIPPIANS 1:1

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I TIMOTHY 3:2

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      TITUS 1:7

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.                                                                                                                                                                                                     I PETER 2:25

OVERSIGHT

 

And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.                                                                                                                                         LUKE 19:44

For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.                                                                                                                                                                                                         ACTS 1:20

This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.                                                          I TIMOTHY 3:1

Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.                                                                                                               I PETER 2:12
