Shepherds' Conference: Part 2 - Wrath, Sovereignty, & Grace • Faithfulness In Suffering

I'm sharing some thoughts, quotes, and verses that I posted on Twitter during the Shepherds' Conference for pastors.
I really enjoy getting to watch!

General Session 3: Steven J. Lawson

This is the day when the moral restraints of the Word of
God are being thrown off by the culture. - Steven Lawson #ShepCon

This is the anarchy of this generation to no longer be contained to one man one woman for life.  Listening to Steven Lawson #ShepCon

He Who sits in the Heavens laughs.  It is the laughter of derision, disdain, and mockery.  Listening to Steven Lawson #ShepCon

The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes. Proverbs 21:1 NASB #ShepCon

He it is who reduces rulers to nothing,
Who makes the judges of the earth meaningless.
Isaiah 40:23 NASB #ShepCon

If a man does not repent, He will sharpen His sword; He has bent His bow and made it ready.  Psalm 7:12 NASB #ShepCon

This world is not run as a democracy, but as a Theocracy. - Steven Lawson #ShepCon

In Heaven there are no caucuses, debates, brokered conventions...just God (who is in control).  Listening to Steven Lawson #ShepCon

It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  Hebrews 10:31 NASB #ShepCon #ShepCon2016

Worship the LORD with reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
Psalm 2:11 NASB

In the midst of the swirl and storm of gathering judgment there is now this invitation.  Hearing Steven Lawson #ShepCon

To escape the wrath & enter into grace & mercy take refuge in Him.
Hearing Steven Lawson #ShepCon

General Session 4: Ligon Duncan

It is God's wrath and His love that is displayed on the cross. Ligon Duncan speaking at

General Session 5: Nathan Busenitz

I've been watching Nathan Busenitz lectures on Historical Theology, so here I go again watching him speak!

Success is measured in terms of faithfulness. Listening to (Nathan Busenitz)

If success is defined from God's perspective...then the heroes of Heb 11 not only understood what success is, but they lived it. NB

In the eyes of the world Moses was a failure, but he was faithful to his calling. Listening to N. Busenitz

As ministers of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are to be faithful...and leave the results to Him. Hearing N Busenitz

False teachers are lovers of money....The truth is that they are fools.
Hearing N Busenitz #ShepCon

That will be enough to account for on the day of judgment. - Spurgeon on only having 100 in the church.  #ShepCon

Timothy's motivation was to be to please the One to Whom he would one day give an account. Hearing N Busenitz #ShepCon

The true standard of success is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ...and the measure of success is faithfulness to Him.  #ShepCon  NB

The faithful minister is willing to endure suffering if that's what's entailed in serving Christ.  Hearing N Busenitz #ShepCon

(On FB) Our world tells us suffering is the result of failure, but the faithful minister is willing to endure suffering if that's what's entailed in serving Christ. (Hearing N. Busenitz...chopped from what he was saying).

Paul rejoiced in the knowledge that Christ was being glorified. -N Busenitz #ShepCon Paul was only concerned about the reputation of Christ.
Suffering is no sign of failure as long as you are faithful to the Lord. - @nbusenitz
