The Pulpit: Its Powers and Pitfalls

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 1

1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5  (ID: 2051)

The pulpit is intended not as a showcase for a preacher’s performance, but as the place from which a pastor gives Christ-exalting, biblical instruction. Using Paul’s admonition to the Corinthians as a standard, Alistair Begg identifies nine pitfalls that threaten to undermine effective pastoral ministry. Only when a preacher is Spirit-filled, anointed, and empowered by God does a divine encounter occur within the listeners, awakening faith in Jesus and glorifying God through the preaching.

Christ the Wisdom and Power of God

18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
