Learning to Respect Our Leadership

Learning to Respect Our Leadership

Like the authority structure God has established for the home, He has also designed a leadership structure in the local church. Alistair Begg helps us to understand biblical church leadership in terms of the activity of the leaders and the attitude of the members. God’s design brings about harmony within the church so that the children of God will remain faithful and live to please Him.

Belief And Behavior, Volume 1

The Thessalonian church held a tender place in the heart of the Apostle Paul. In this expositional study of Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, we see a paradigm for pastoral ministry, emphasizing the life-changing content of the Gospel and the concerns of Paul’s heart for the healthy spiritual growth of the individuals that make up the church body. Alistair Begg teaches from this rich resource to help us develop an understanding of the dynamics of the Christian life, both in what we believe and how we are to behave.

Paul was confident in the Thessalonians’ standing in Christ, and in volume one of this series, we see his deep thankfulness and affection for these young believers. Here we see a pastor’s careful treatment of the Gospel along with a deep love for the Church. When Christian ministry strikes this balance, the Church is strengthened and looks to those in leadership with respect and in anticipation of teaching, care, and prayer.

In volume two of this series, we see Paul’s answer to the question, “How do we please God?”The intensely practical answer delves into the areas of sexual purity, brotherly love, hard work, and honest living. We see that the foundation for belief and behavior is the saving work of Jesus Christ. Those who love Christ must wait with patient anticipation for His return, pleasing Him with our lives and steadfast in the certainty of our hope.

Volume three of this series addresses principles of healthy corporate life and worship within the local church. Having established what they were to believe and the lifestyle they were to display, the Apostle Paul reminded his readers of their responsibilities to God and to each other. Living together as a church family involves submission to leadership, corporate worship, and genuine expressions of fellowship.
