Laymen! Pastors! Watch Your Life and Doctrine!
Here's a wonderful, for a limited time, offer from Crossway Books.
Crossway is making available one of the chapters from a forthcoming book, Preaching the Cross, by C.J. Mahaney. This chapter, "The Pastor's Priorities: Watch Your Life and Doctrine" comes from C.J.'s plenary session at the recent Together for the Gospel Conference. His message was from 1 Timothy 4:16 which reads: "Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers." While directed primarily to pastors, most if not all the truths addressed by C.J. are equally applicable to every member of the Body of Christ.
This chapter is available at Justin Taylor's site, Between Two Worlds. May I encourage each and every believer to read this timely, biblical treatment of I Timothy 4. On just the first page alone C.J. admonishes us with, "The stakes could not be higher. Nothing less than the preservation of yourself and your congregation hang upon the God-appointed means of your faithful pastoral ministry. The implications couldn’t be more serious. They are, in fact, eternal."
This is great stuff, folks. Don't miss it!
