Preservation of the Saints (Ligonier) (Part 1 of 2)

Preservation of the Saints (Ligonier) (Part 1 of 2)

The Bible clearly teaches that once you are saved, nothing can separate you from the love of God. But, is it possible to walk away? On Truth For Life with Alistair Begg, we’ll address this issue as we begin our new series called, The Pastor’s Study, Volume 7!

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.

In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg addresses practical aspects of preaching common to every pastor. 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.

In volume three of this series, Alistair Begg reminds pastors to stay focused on God’s Word as the source of inerrant truth. 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.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 4

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.

Volume four of this series addresses the value of evangelistic preaching for the modern pulpit. Drawing on biblical figures, personal experience, and known theologians, Alistair Begg explores the merits of biblical preaching that draws listeners to Christ. When pastors and congregations depend on God for strength and victory, His word is proclaimed and His name glorified.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 5

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."

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 five of this series, Alistair Begg explores the Gospel’s central role in the pastor’s preaching ministry. If a preacher isn’t watchful, his pulpit can easily become a platform for chasing fame or sharing worldly wisdom that leaves the hearer without real hope. Only the Good News of God’s grace can truly kindle belief in the lost and ignite the Church for its holy mission.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 6

In volume six of this series, Alistair Begg examines the Bible’s instruction on pastoral priorities. Scripture teaches that the pastor must give himself wholeheartedly to the preaching of the Gospel—a duty built on prayer and personal holiness. With this priority in view, pastors can equip their congregations in the confidence that God Himself empowers their work.

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 seven of this series, Alistair Begg emphasizes the sufficiency of Scripture in the pastor’s work. When pastors compromise the Bible’s truths or doubt its power, their ministry crumbles: God’s Word must be preached faithfully, regardless of the cultural climate. Pastors will be strengthened by these messages as they fulfill their callings and faithfully exposit Scripture.
