27 I can say this because I know that I told you everything that God wants you to know. 28 Be careful for yourselves and for all the people God has given you. The Holy Spirit gave you the work of caring for[a] this flock.[b] You must be shepherds to the church of God,[c] the people he bought with his own blood.[d] 29 I know that after I leave, some men will come into your group. They will be like wild wolves and will try to destroy the flock.Read full chapter
