The Call of Ministry

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 2

2 Corinthians 4:1  (ID: 2160)

Those who preach the Gospel are tempted in many ways: Some may become consumed with self-glorification, others may shy away from preaching hard truths, and still others may lose heart, resorting to methodologies different from that of the apostles. Against such temptations, Alistair Begg points us to Paul’s confident explanation of his ministry in 2 Corinthians 4. In the end, Scripture reminds us, the same grace that saves each pastor must also entice him to show grace to his flock faithfully.


The Light of the Gospel

1Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,1 we do not lose heart.
