I have been given the great honor of liveblogging the first ever Together for the Gospel Conference. This is a conference dedicated to one thing: the centrality of the good news of Jesus Christ.

“Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, C.J. Mahaney, and Albert Mohler minister in diverse contexts, but they are united in this: the centrality of the gospel of Jesus Christ, preached clearly and lived faithfully. Now they are coming together in a unique conference to encourage you in the sufficiency of the gospel’s power to build your local church. Special guests John MacArthur, John Piper, and R.C. Sproul will each bring a message and join in panel discussions. Come together with these men and explore what really matters in your life, church, and ministry. Come together for the gospel.”

As you read this, I am travelling to Louisville, Kentucky to participate. As with the other conferences I have blogged, I hope to allow those who cannot attend to experience just a little bit of the atmosphere. I hope to be able to provide a synopsis of each of the sessions so that you, too, can be edified by the preaching of these men of God.

So please be sure to check in through the remainder of this week. I look forward to being able to serve you, even if only in this small way. I hope and pray that the conference will be a blessing both to those who are able to attend and those who are not.

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
