It’s the Lord’s Day…and Day Light Saving!

So to save time since it’s a duty day as a pastor and preacher I thought I share this video from Ligon Duncan.  It’s on his remembrance of his early days in ministry.  It’s worth listening to for those who are younger pastors new to the ministry.

Enjoy this video.  And may those who are in the ministry continue you growing in grace and remaining humble and loving of our churches!

As we approach the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation I thought it would be timely to also share this book review of a biography of an important Reformed preacher in Protestant history: George Whitefield.

1 Timothy 5:17-19 states

 The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except on the basis of two or three witnesses.

Note in verse 17 that Paul’s intention in writing this is so that those who serve in the church as Elders/Pastors to “work hard at preaching and teaching.”  Verse 18 tips us that he’s going to give us the reasons for this with the use of the word “for” which shows the motivation.  I want to look at one of the motivation for this Sunday and Lord willing another next Sunday.
