No matter what stage of life we are in, every believer needs to understand the link between the faith that we profess and the lifestyle that should characterize us. The challenge isn't to blend in with the culture, but by our distinctiveness, to adorn the gospel. In Titus 2:1-5, Paul begins this instruction in Christian living with the older generation of men and women, whose stage in life presents new responsibilities and opportunities to influence those around them.

The Basics 2012 Pastor’s Conference at Parkside Church was marked by a clear call for pastors to devote themselves to prayer and ministry of the Word. Teaching from Acts 6, pastors were encouraged to revisit the apostles’ theological decision to preach the Gospel, leaving the task of feeding widows to competent men in the church. While many today find themselves consumed by the latest fad or new idea, Alistair Begg affirmed that preaching and prayer are the primary duties of the pastor. Mark Dever and Voddie Baucham joined Alistair Begg for the Basics 2012 Conference on May 14-16, 2012 at ...

Why is it so important that elders be men who know, teach, and live the truth? Titus 1:10-16 explains that it is a matter of spiritual life and death. Elders must be able to teach the truth so that the people under their care know sound doctrine and are able to distinguish counterfeits in their midst.

As we continue in Titus 1:5-16, we learn that the qualifications given for church elders are both positive (characteristics they must have) and negative (characteristics that must not be true of them). But most important of all is that they have a wholehearted commitment to biblical truth.

How should a pastor prioritize the many demands placed upon his time and energy? Alistair Begg emphasizes that this question must not be answered by looking to the expectations of the congregation, but by examining what the Bible has to say. The pastor's priority must be the faithful preaching of God's Word, undergirded with prayer and with Jesus in view. Faithful ministry of this kind builds up the congregation and equips the people for acts of service.

Moving into the second chapter of Titus, it is helpful to focus first on what Paul says directly to this younger pastor, in verses 1, 7-8, and 15. The apostle's messsage is clear and consistent: teach sound doctrine - with dignity and integrity, with good works and godly character, and with the authority given by God himself.

id GS1043

Voddie Baucham teaches from Paul’s final letter to Timothy (2 Timothy 1) where he opens his heart up before God. Voddie encourages preachers to not only preach, but to pray. A shepherd who preaches must be a shepherd who prays, and therefore the shepherd who prays will always be a shepherd who preaches. If the preacher finds himself at a point in life where prayer is absent, it’s directly indicative of one who is moving away from dependence on God.

Mark Dever teaches from John 17 and guides pastors through a moving prayer prayed by Jesus. With simplicity as the guide, Dever points to four essential elements of prayer from our Savior: praying to His righteous and holy Father on behalf of Himself and those whom the Father has given, praying for protection, praying for sanctification and unity, and praying for His Father’s glory.
