"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Expositors Conference - Revisited

    I often enjoy checking out the web site of Pastor Steve Weaver found here. I was doing so today and read about something I know I should have mentioned a long, long time ago here, namely, last year's Expositors Conference. I was truly blessed by this material (though I could not attend the Conference last year, I have heard the messages a number of times) and mention it here, so that others can gain the benefits too. (The next Conference is less than a month away, October 6, 7, with Dr. Steve Lawson and Dr. Ligon Duncan.) Anyway - here's what Pastor Weaver wrote:

    "This past October a conference on expository preaching was held at Christ Fellowship Church in Mobile, AL. The speakers last year were Pastor Steven Lawson and Dr. John MacArthur. This conference offers wonderful examples of (in Lawson’s opening and closing messages) and arguments for expository preaching. There is no one that I enjoy hear preaching about preaching than Steven Lawson (maybe John Piper). His passion stirs my soul. John MacArthur is speaking out of 40 years experience of expository preaching and describes the practical benefits that he has observed over the course of his ministry. If you need to be convinced of the value of expository preaching or encouraged in its practice, then listen to these lectures/messages... Enjoy."

    Session 1: The Invincible Weapon Dr. Steven J. Lawson (Hebrews 4:12-13)
    Session 2: What is Expository Preaching? Dr. Steven J. Lawson
    Session 3: Why I Am Committed to Expository Preaching I Dr. John MacArthur
    Session 4: Why I Am Committed to Expository Preaching II Dr. John MacArthur
    Session 5: Expositors Conference Question and Answer Session
    Session 6: The Ten How To’s of Expository Preaching Dr. Steven J. Lawson
    Session 7: Famine in the Land Dr. Steven J. Lawson (Amos 8:11)

    All of these messages can be found here . I recommend them very highly - Rev. John Samson
