HTH: Dangerous Calling

In Dangerous Calling, Paul Tripp helpfully reminds pastors to sit under their own gospel teaching, and to be cognizant of the fact that they too are in the middle of their own sanctification. When teaching youth especially, the temptation to become comfortable and to under-prepare can be great. But Tripp gently exposes the prideful feelings of “arrival” that can hijack any pastor’s heart and ministry. This is a must-read if you’re serious about pastoring, out of a sense of your own need, for the long-haul.
