The Pastor's Study, Volume 1

Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that "the work of preaching is the highest and greatest and most glorious calling to which anyone can ever be called." Such a high calling, however, comes with a high level of responsibility: As a pastor places his confidence in the Gospel’s power, the task of proclamation must be his chief concern. In the Pastor’s Study, we present a collection of sermons designed to help and encourage the Gospel-centered pastor as he evangelizes faithfully and establishes believers in the sound doctrine essential to spiritual growth. In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg looks to Scripture for examples of biblical leadership. In Nehemiah’s efforts to rebuild Jerusalem’s walls and Paul’s work to establish the New Testament Church, today’s pastors find patterns of God-centered leadership worthy of imitation. True leadership, the Bible reminds us, is about submitting oneself to God’s vision for His people.

Throughout Scripture and Christian history, we see God using biblical preaching to build His Church and save the lost. While methods vary and styles differ, a pastor’s practice in the pulpit should reflect his careful stewardship of God’s Word and point hearers to the cross.

Preachers should teach the Bible in a manner that glorifies God, since He alone can change people’s hearts and draw new worshipers to Himself. Regardless of the challenges or changes that may come, a good leader places his trust in God’s strength, not his own.

Only the Good News of God’s grace can truly kindle belief in the lost and ignite the Church for its holy mission.

Pastors will be strengthened by these messages as they fulfill their callings and faithfully exposit Scripture.
