Ligon Duncan: Thank God for the Wonderful Incarnation of the Son of God

We bless you that when the fullness of time had come, you sent forth your Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4-5(ESV)

That the eternal Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and there were those who saw his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14(ESV) Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness, that God was manifested in the flesh. 1 Timothy 3:16(ESV)

We bless you that for this purpose he was born and for this purpose he came into the world, to bear witness to the truth; John 18:37(ESV) and we believe and have come to know that he is the Christ, the Holy One of God; John 6:69(ESV) that it is he who should come, and we are to look for no other.

We bless you that the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost; Luke 19:10(ESV) that he has come that we might have life and have it abundantly; John 10:10(ESV) and that the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8(ESV)

Lord, we receive the saying as trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, even the foremost. 1 Timothy 1:15(ESV)

We bless you that since the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things. Hebrews 2:14(ESV)That it is not angels that he helps, but us; and that he was made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful High Priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people; Hebrews 2:16-17(ESV) and that he is not ashamed to call them brothers. Hebrews 2:11(ESV)

And that the firstborn was brought into the world with a charge given to all the angels of God to worship him. Hebrews 1:6(ESV)

Shepherds’ Conference 2016 Q&A

Another great Q&A – session, with questions ranging from, “The importance of diving deep into the Word of God” to “the job of a pastoral minister”, and many in between. Albert Mohler, Ligon Duncan and John MacArthur, also give us some great insight, about, “what is means to be biblically grounded in a liberal age”. I would recommend this session to anyone, that thirsts for a clear understanding of, what is means to be standing for truth in society.
