Transparency, Integrity, Urgency

From Series: For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 1

Acts 20:17-24  (ID: 2456)

When a church suffers unresolved problems, the resulting chaos can often be traced back to defective leadership. In this study of Paul’s farewell to the Ephesian elders in Acts 20, Alistair Begg uses the apostle’s life to illustrate three essential factors of effective biblical leadership: transparency, integrity, and urgency. These virtues aren’t a magic bullet against difficulty, though. Even a ministry that is open, consistent, Gospel-centered, and Spirit-led will still face challenges that require steadfast faith and perseverance.


Paul Speaks to the Ephesian Elders

17Now from Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called the elders of the church to come to him.
