A ministry based on the Word of God is a ministry which is playing the “long game.” Often the results of a ministry of the Word are NOT immediately perceptible. But the Spirit over time uses the Word to bear fruit a hundred-fold. “Preach the Word in season & out of season.”

Pastoral ministry is driven by the affections. The three loves of pastoral ministry: 1) The love for God (Mark 12:30) 2) The love for God’s Word (2 Timothy 2:15) 3) The love for God’s people (1 Peter 5:2) If any of these ‘loves’ are missing, the pastor’s ministry will fail.

Each day that goes by brings with it the harsh reality that I cannot repent enough, mortify sin enough, believe enough, love enough, serve enough, give enough, be godly enough. But praise the Lord!—Christ is enough! He is my pardon and my righteousness.

I declare that I endeavored to teach His Word undefiled and to expound Holy Scripture faithfully, according to the measure of grace which He has given me. —Calvin in his last will and testament (April 25, 1564) May the Lord raise up an army of men with the same ambition.

"1917" is a powerful--and deceptively theological--metaphor of life in a fallen world. Honor is all that is left of a life when it ends. Rest is found only where trees flourish. My review:

One of the great dangers of ministry: “There can be gifts without graces; that is, one may be capable of performances that benefit others spiritually and yet be a stranger oneself to the Spirit-wrought inner transformation that true knowledge of God brings.” —J. I. Packer

Upon reflection I’m so glad I was taught to do Bible exposition. I can’t imagine constantly trying to come up with new material to preach each week. The Scriptures are simply inexhaustible, and I have found that there is always something fresh in the very next verses.

Parents are the primarily disciplers of their children. This responsibility cannot be delegated, but it is the sacred duty of every Christian parent. We are to continually proclaim the excellencies of Christ and pray for the miracle of conversion in the heart of each child.

One of the critical keys to courageous witness is self-forgetfulness. The only way to be self-forgetful is to gaze so unceasingly at Christ that His glory becomes uppermost in your thoughts and affections. But it’s in self-forgetfulness that we begin to press beyond ourselves.

More than a third of the New Testament is focused on the second coming of Christ. Most of what is revealed about the second coming of Christ is meant to lead believers to watch and wait. All of what is revealed is meant to fuel a zeal for holiness in the lives of believers.

The Holy Spirit kindles the affections *through* the mind. The knowledge of God is meant to set aflame a passion to glorify Him and walk in communion with Him. Some want communion without knowledge. But a true experience of God is dependent on the true knowledge of God.

I got a notification from Twitter of a strange log-in. I changed my password, but I guess it was NOT soon enough.

True intercessory prayer is ultimately the recognition that there is nothing we can to do to help. —Sinclair Ferguson
