“Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.” (2 Timothy 4:2).
Sure, there are plenty of discouraging indicators that the world and church are heading in the wrong direction but here’s one sign in the midst of it all that should encourage you: the Shepherds’ Conference, which is held annually at John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in Los Angeles had its highest attendance ever last week!
That’s right, over 3300 men — pastors, elders, and laymen — from all over the world literally overflowed the church sanctuary to hear expository preaching by John MacArthur, Al Mohler, Steven Lawson, Phil Johnson, Voddie Baucham, and Tom Pennington. In the midst of a darkening world, this is a very positive sign that God is still at work and motivating men to faithfully preach His Word.
I was one of those men fortunate to attend the Shepherds’ Conference last week and this Saturday on The Christian Worldview, I will share some highlights of the preaching, including the trustworthiness of the Word, the importance of the Holy Spirit, leadership in our homes, and much more. Be sure to tune in!
