At Village Seven, we spend a great deal of time and effort training men to serve as elders and deacons. Our officers go through nine months of classroom training usually followed by a one year apprenticeship. Much of what we study would be of benefit to all church members. So, over the next few weeks, I will post some of the articles that men in the training read. This week's post focuses on the Centrality of the Gospel.
Gospel Centered Sanctification by Jerry Bridges. Whenever anyone asks me my view on sanctification, this is the article that I give them.
The Centrality of the Gospel by Tim Keller. In this article, Keller shows how the gospel renews every dimension of our lives.
Martin Luther's Preface to His Commentary on Galatians. Tim Keller has edited this a bit. This short article sums up what it means to live in line with the gospel.
The Gospel Centered Life. This is not an article, but a Bible study curriculum. It does a great job of outlining how to grow more and more in Christ-likeness.
All of Life is Repentance by Tim Keller. Very, very helpful on what repentance is and how to do it.
