An Ordination Sermon

1 Corinthians 4:1-17  (ID: 2339)

In a message from Paul’s epistle to the Corinthian church, Alistair Begg shows us that pastoral ministry should be neither overly esteemed nor written off. The minister of God, he reminds us, is a servant of Christ and is responsible to Him alone. There is comfort and challenge in this responsibility. While the world may reject those who proclaim God’s Word, we should embrace that tension, seeking not popularity or praise, but to preach the truth.


The Ministry of Apostles

1This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
