Tools of the Trade for March 9, 2020

A Weekly List of Links and Resources for Pastors

I hope you had a good weekend of ministry. Here are some articles that are worthwhile reading.

Tim Challies wrote one of the best articles I’ve ever read on pastoral ministry on his blog today. You’ll be blessed by what Tim shares.

We tend not to think about theology when we think about buildings. But we should. The folks at 9Marks posted this article by John Henderson.

This article by Jared WilsonAnxious for Nothing: Addressing the Worry I Can’t Explain – is something you can share with your people as well as read it for yourself.

Another Challies article: When Parents Fail Like We Are Mostly Failing Most of the Time. For your literature table.

Tim Patrick and Andrew Reid give us 7 Tips for Planning a Sermon Series.

Your people wonder how to reconcile our prayers with God’s sovereignty. John Piper provides an answer.

Jen Oshman talks about A Personal vs. Private Relationship with Christ. Good stuff.

Timothy Paul Jones encourages us with Don’t Be Afraid to Preach for Conversions. It’s so important to keep the Gospel and the need to believe it in front of our people!

Amen! Amen! Andrew King says Don’t Bring Your Greek or Hebrew Bible to Corporate Worship.

Here’s a book review of Reformed Preaching by Joel Beeke by Mark Redfern over at 9Marks.

I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to this question, but Michael Krueger gives his opinion on Should You Preach from a Full Manuscript?

Put a dozen copies of this article on your literature table and I’ll bet they’re gone within a week or two. Scott Sauls tells us about Hope for Busted Up Sinners Like Me.

Christy Britton writes This Little Church of Mine, I’m Gonna Let It Shine.

Colton Corter tells us Why Church Members Must Be Theologians. Of course, that means we need to preach and teach them accordingly.

And that does it for this week. I hope something above will be useful to you and your people! God bless you as you serve him this week!

Married to Laura, with three adult children, 7 grandchildren. I’m an avid baseball fan, and I enjoy listening to audiobooks about military history, and reading Theology. I was ordained a Baptist pastor and served two churches over a 41 year period. After a three year hiatus I'm glad to be serving at Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg, PA. And I’m glad you stopped by!
