I have the joy of 3 men preparing for gospel ministry at my church: my intern, our elder candidate, and our youth minister (who preached last week for the first time, and is off to a solid start).

My intern preached this morning from Ps 40.1-3. All in all, very well done; he is improving in both his sense and handling of the text. Our elder candidate preached tonight from Lk 22/Jn 21 on Peter's threefold denial and Christ's threefold restoration; it was powerful and edifying.

PM service, occasional communion message, Amos 9, To Death Pursued.
Acts 20, the nature of Paul's ministry: Faithful to the gospel above absolutely everything else including life itself, not holding back the Word of God, unselfish and not for personal gain, urgent regarding the souls of listeners, trusting in God for results, finishing strong.
At the ARP church I am visiting, Dr. Leslie Holmes (Erskine Seminary) preached on Christ as the sure anchor of our faith, drawing from Jeremiah 29:6-9 and the latter part of Hebrews 6.
