How is your holiness?
Are you concerned about the gap between what you preach and how you live?
Watching our lives, as well as our doctrine, really matters.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne, a nineteenth century pastor, is quoted as saying, “The greatest need of my people is my personal holiness.” Why? Because it is a vital part of genuine gospel ministry. Holiness is a beautiful thing. It is seen most perfectly in our Lord Jesus. It is seen in us, as we grow in Him. Listen to the testimony of one of M’Cheyne’s hearers,:
“There was something singularly attractive about Mr M’Cheyne’s holiness… It was not his matter nor his manner either that struck me; it was just the living epistle of Christ – a picture so lovely, I felt I would have given all the world to be as he was… ”
Holiness is not optional. It is integral to all we are, both as believers in our Lord Jesus and as shepherds of His flock. Both we, and those we serve, are people who have been made holy by a holy Saviour, who calls us to share in His holiness, as we head to His holy place.
Our starting point for this year’s conference programme is Paul’s call to Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:8-9: “But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life.” We will consider the implications of God’s call to be holy for pastoral ministry and gospel advance.
Sharing in the holiness of our Lord Jesus takes time and action. Your 2018 diary will fill up very quickly. Book the date now. Encourage your gospel partners to come with you. It will be great to see you.
Each conference will begin at 10am with tea & coffee, and will finish at 3:30pm. Lunch will be provided.
Attendance is free for members of the Pastors’ Network, but there is a charge of £10 for non-members. Wives can attend at no extra cost.
