WM 143: Devotion for Ministers on 1 Corinthians 4
I have posted WM 143: Devotion for Ministers on 1 Corinthians 4. Listen here.
I was asked to give this devotion at a Reformed Baptist Pastoral Fraternal that met on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 in a pastor's home in Staunton, Virginia.
The devotion drew upon three points from 1 Corinthians 4:
1. Ministers as "stewards of the mysteries of God" (vv. 1-2);
2. The universality of the ministry as Paul taught "every where in every church" (v. 17);
3. The authority of the ministry ("shall I come unto you with a rod?") (v. 21).
Good time of discussion, fellowship, and prayer after the devotion, plus an excellent lunch provided by our host.
This fraternal yesterday was in the western part of Virginia (Staunton). Today I also had the pleasure of attending another fraternal of Reformed Baptist pastors that met in the eastern part of the state (in Sandston). Thankful for fellowship among ministers.
