Ministry can be daunting—so much so, in fact, that in his second letter to the church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul wondered, “Who is equal to such a task?” Alistair Begg walks us through Paul’s answer to this probing question. Through a series of powerful images and illustrations, Paul shows that what sets true Christian ministers apart from the false teachers of his day—and ours—isn’t fame, profit, or success. Instead, it’s a sincere commitment to personal integrity, self-forgetfulness, and the proclamation of the Gospel.
14But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
