Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that “the work of preaching is the highest and the greatest and the 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 early 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.
