It's easy for local congregations to become comfortable and allow our outreach to neighbors and friends to wane. But the pattern of our Lord is a passionate commitment to spread the good news of the kingdom of God. In this message from Matthew 9:36-38, Alistair Begg explains that taking our responsibility to share the gospel seriously means making Jesus' priorities our own by seeing those around us clearly, caring deeply, thinking properly, and praying fervently.
What is pastoral ministry really about, at its core? The four-fold directive that the Apostle Paul gave to Timothy provides a clear perspective: always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry. In this message, Alistair Begg explores these timeless imperatives and encourages Christian ministers to persevere in preaching the Gospel even in the middle of a challenging culture.
What do people look for in a preacher? The Apostle Paul warned young pastor Timothy about those who seek teaching that is only what they want to hear, rather than biblical truth. In this message, Alistair Begg emphasizes the importance of preaching the Bible in the life of a healthy local church. God’s purposes for us will be accomplished only when we submit our hearts to the faithful teaching of scriptural truth.
