Description

The Gospel Coalition Podcast features keynote and breakout sessions from our national, regional, and women's conferences. We exist to equip the next generation of believers, pastors, and church leaders to shape life and ministry around the gospel.

Episode Date
Even in Our Anxiety, God Is in Control
00:47:12

“We serve a God who is not only powerful—not only does he have utter control of everything that's going on in our lives—but we serve one who has tasted death on our behalf.” – Alasdair Groves

Alasdair Groves taught a breakout session at TGC’s 2021 National Conference titled, “Nothing Outside His Control” as a response to the anxiety that is common to our human experience and amplified through current events.

Defining anxiety as “the reality that, in the fallen world, there will be suffering in our future,” Groves turned to Hebrews 2:7-9 to flesh out how we should address it. The passage of Scripture, he taught, clearly states that God is in full control of all things, but we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. Embracing those two truths and holding them in tension is key to rightly responding to anxiety in our lives.

Motherhood and the Hope of the Gospel
00:45:37

TGC hosted a panel discussion during the 2021 Women’s Conference titled “Motherhood and the Hope of the Gospel” with Christine Hoover, Trillia Newbell, Irene Sun, and Laura Wifler.

Against the backdrop of such a difficult last year for mothers everywhere dealing with the reality of pandemic-driven changes, the panel offered words of hope for those who are tired and weary. 

Mental health, emotional health, relational strain, and all sorts of suffering and struggle common to motherhood were addressed as each participant in the panel offered biblical and experiential wisdom to encourage mothers and point them continually to Christ and his Word.

John Piper on the Essential Achievement of Christ
00:51:04

John Piper preached a message at TGC’s 2021 National Conference on “The Essential Achievement of Christ” from Hebrews 9:1-10:18. Through this text, Piper expounded upon six manifestations of Christ’s greatness, magnifying the central achievement—the removal of guilt—and the averting of the wrath of God from those who are in Christ Jesus.

He preached:

  • Christ the Great Absence
  • Christ the Great Achievement
  • Christ the Great Accession
  • Christ the Great Application
  • Christ the Great Arrival
  • Christ the Great Abundance

Jackie Hill Perry on the Power of Words
00:33:18

Jackie Hill Perry taught a message at TGC’s 2021 Women’s Conference titled “Steadfast Speech: A Mighty Little Tongue.” James chapter 3 formed the backdrop for her admonition to carefully control the tongue by the power of the Spirit. Perry taught that the tongue is accountable, the tongue is powerful, and the tongue is inconsistent.

Creating a better world through our words, she suggested, comes by addressing those realities in three ways. She called her listeners to be honest, to behold, and to be filled.

Gentle Savior, Gentle Shepherd
00:39:21

Speaking at TGC’s 2021 National Conference, Dane Ortlund delivered a message titled “Gentle Savior, Gentle Shepherd.” He addressed a common insufficiency many believers—and church leaders, specifically—possess when it comes to really knowing Christ.

Through four Old Testament passages, Ortlund outlined the gracious, merciful, compassionate character of God that “rolled out the red carpet and constructed a perfectly fitted throne” for the King who would appear in the New Testament to inhabit it.

Understanding the character of God throughout the Scriptures sets the stage for knowing how Christ approaches us, Ortlund taught, and how church leaders should then approach those under their care.

Aug 27, 2021
Forgiveness: The Hardest and Most Life-Changing Thing We Can Do
00:43:40

Vaneetha Rendall Risner delivered a message titled “Forgiveness: The Hardest and Most Life-Changing Thing We Can Do” at TGC’s 2021 Women’s Conference. Speaking from her own difficult experience learning to forgive someone who had hurt her deeply, she encouraged those listening to explore and understand what forgiveness really is—allowing God to heal them through the process.

Risner clarified what forgiveness is and, just as importantly, what it is not, as she outlined what it means to forgive in a healthy, biblical manner.

 

 

Aug 20, 2021
Female Bravery and the Mission of God
00:43:10

Jen Wilkin delivered a message at TGC’s 2021 National Conference called “Female Bravery and the Mission of God.” Walking through Scripture, Wilkin relayed stories of women who feared God rather than men and stood against the Serpent, risking their very lives. The imagery revealed in the stories, she taught, is the metaphor necessary for the modern church to understand in order to also be shrewd as a serpent and innocent as a dove—overcoming the enemy that wages war against our very souls.

Aug 13, 2021
Are African Americans Really Free at Last?
00:47:36

Phillip Holmes moderated a panel with Carl Ellis and Walter Strickland at TGC's 2021 National Conference titled “Free at Last: The Gospel and the African American Experience 25 Years Later.” From the framework developed in Carl Ellis’s Free At Last, the panel addressed questions regarding the African American experience over the last 400 years, including history, cultural contexts, and cultural biases and how that has affected African Americans and their faith.

 

 

Aug 06, 2021
The Now-and-Forever Kingdom of God
01:01:41

Paige Brown taught a session at TGC's 2021 Women’s Conference titled “Kingdom Matters.” Many believers, she posited, focus their belief mainly on how we are saved (justification), while lessening the theological and practical importance of what we are saved to do. The kingdom, she proclaimed, is not only good for the future but is meant for today and should permeate every part of our world. And it is the role of the church—of every believer—to proclaim the goodness of the kingdom.

Before You Lose Your Faith: Deconstruction and the Church
00:47:28

Brett McCracken hosted a panel discussion at TGC's 2021 Women’s Conference with Alisa Childers, Preston Perry, and Trevin Wax titled “Before You Lose Your Faith: Deconstructing Doubt in the Church," addressing the topic of healthy deconstruction as discussed in the book by the same name. The panel addressed multiple questions, from what healthy deconstruction looks like to cultural structures that fuel deconstruction processes, to how believers address conversation about deconstruction, and much more. Ultimately, the process of healthy deconstruction should allow for questions while pointing to Jesus—reminding those who question of all that Christ has done. 

Jul 23, 2021
Can I Lose My Salvation?
00:42:46

Mike Kruger delivered a message at TGC’s 2021 Women’s Conference titled “Can I Lose My Faith? Understanding Apostasy.” Susan Pevensie, of The Chronicles of Narnia fame, serves as the jumping off point of the message, having been so central to the beginning of Lewis’s storyline, yet so glaringly absent from its conclusion. As Peter, her brother, explained, she was eventually “no longer a friend of Narnia.” Her story is reminiscent of many believers who seem to be strong in their faith but eventually walk away from Christ and his kingdom. “Apostasy,” as it is known, is a difficult and touchy subject. 

In his message, Kruger addresses the topic, first clearly defining what it is (and isn’t), pointing to biblical examples, clarifying truths about apostasy, and finally, denoting how Christians should respond to it.   

Jul 16, 2021
The Hard Work of Lifelong Friendships
00:44:40

Christine Hoover delivered a message at TGC's 2021 Women’s Conference titled “Messy Beautiful Friendship: Learning to Love Others in a Christlike Way.” Speaking from her own experiences building friendships—first as a child, then as an adult—Hoover discussed the “wish dream”: the idealized vision of a perfect friendship that too many women embrace. She compared this to the reality of mature, biblical friendship that, despite all its flaws and blemishes, is a priceless gift from God.

She looked at four components of biblical friendships, exemplified by Christ, that women should pursue:

– Focus on giving (serving) and befriending others

– Erase unnecessary restrictions

– Devote yourself to people

– Be vulnerable

Julius Kim on Witnessing in Weakness
00:50:18

Julius Kim delivered a message to the Bay Area Regional Chapter of TGC titled “Weakness & Witness” as part of the series “Testify: Bearing Witness to Christ in the Present Age.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 served as the text by which Kim encouraged his listeners to testify to the goodness of God even in the midst of overwhelming weakness. 

When we feel intimidated, overwhelmed, hopeless, powerless, paralyzed, and demoralized in the face of a culture that esteems success and shuns godliness, we are empowered by the same spirit—the spirit of the resurrected Christ—that enabled Paul to witness with power and confidence to the elite in Athens. 

Jul 02, 2021
Does God Still Love Me If I'm Gay?
00:46:54

Sam Allberry delivered a message to the Arizona Regional Chapter of TGC titled “Is God Anti-Gay?” Springboarding from his own personal struggle with homosexuality, Allberry addressed the question of sexuality and its association with sin according to Jesus’s own words. He refuted the idea that Jesus was silent on the issue of sexual ethics; in fact, he intensified the already stringent sexual ethic of the Old Testament. Jesus’s expectation for his people in marriage and sexuality—just as in all of life—is high. It requires the denial of one’s own sinful, selfish desires in order to become who we were meant to be and receive life. It is a costly proposition. And it is always worth it.

The Absolute Authority of Scripture
00:49:24

Andy Davis delivered a message to the Carolinas Regional Chapter of TGC titled “How the Scriptures Equip” as a part of the series “Equipped for Every Good.” Teaching from 2 Timothy 3:14-17, he argued that scripture alone is perfectly sufficient to equip believers for our journey of salvation—from unbelief to faithful, growing followers of Jesus. He then applied that truth to the responsibility pastors steward as they preach and lead their churches. Summarizing Spurgeon, he challenged them, “There should be real teaching in your sermon. The doctrine should be solid and substantial. There should be a system of truth building up in your hearers if they hear you over a length of time.” And scripture—in concert with the direct ministry of the Holy Spirit—provides all you need to wisely lead each person under your care in godliness.

Jun 18, 2021
You Are My Neighbor, Too
00:44:49

Jason Cook delivered a message at TGC’s 2018 Carolinas Regional Conference titled “I Am Your Neighbor” as a part of their series “Equipped for Every Good.” Teaching from Luke 10, Cook addressed the nature of discipleship, particularly as it pertains to engaging culture, to the end that a disciple is one who loves God and his neighbor. Cook added the caveat that what we often consider to be love for neighbor may not actually reflect what it means to love others as ourselves.    

Jun 11, 2021
Paul Tripp on the Peril of Pastoral Pride
00:52:42

Paul Tripp delivered a message during PasCon2018 at Bethlehem College titled “Danger of Familiarity.” Directly addressing the pastors in the room, he directed their attention toward a single danger of life in the ministry—familiarity with the gospel. The overwhelming privilege of spending a life dedicated to understanding, declaring, and ministering the gospel can have the adverse effect of numbing pastors to the splendor of God and the gospel. Knowledge and experiences that once led to worship subtly fade and actually become irritants that produce selfishness and self-worship. The danger is that, in the midst of serving God in a life of ministry, pastors often lose their awe of God—the principal shaper and motivator of pastoral ministry.

J. D. Greear on Future Hopes for the Southern Baptist Convention
00:27:51

The current president of the Southern Baptist Convention is J. D. Greear, pastor at The Summit Church in North Carolina. The Summit Church has sent out more than 1,400 missionaries and planted more than 40 churches. Over the past few years, Greear has watched the SBC wrestle through sex abuse scandals, COVID 19, and the contentious presidential election. He’s got a pretty good handle on where the denomination sits and where he hopes it’s going.

TGC senior writer Sarah Zylstra wrote about Greear in her book with Collin Hansen, Gospelbound: Living with Resolute Hope in an Anxious Age. In this episode of TGC Podcast, she sits down with Greear to discuss his experience as SBC president, future hopes for the SBC and the global church, and the importance of keeping the gospel at the center of it all.

Don Carson on Praying for Power
00:46:25

"One of the best things you can do to learn to pray is to follow the best models, and they're in Scripture." – Don Carson

Don Carson led a session for TGC’s 2018 Bay Area regional conference titled “New Power” as a part of the series “Being the Church in a Foreign Land.” All new believers, he taught, learn to pray through imitation—by hearing and practicing the prayers of the more mature believers around them. His admonition to his listeners was that believers also imitate the Pauline prayer found in Ephesians 3:14-21, specifically focusing on two petitions and the final doxology found in the prayer.

Russell Moore on Spiritual Maturity and the Seduction of Sin
00:30:45

Russell Moore led a session for TGC’s 2017 Arizona regional conference titled “Discipleship and Temptation” as a part of their series “Help Me Follow Jesus.” In his message, Moore addressed four questions that arise from Genesis 3:1-13 and serve as a warning for all of those who lead others to faith in Christ, disciple them, and teach them the Word of God. The questions posed were:

  1. Who are you (are you tempted to think of yourself higher or lower than you ought)? 
  2. What do you want (does it align with God’s desires)?
  3. Where are you going (do you live with an understanding of the coming judgment)?
  4. What have you done (are you allowing your sin to be exposed in order to overcome it)?

“If you and I are discipling people,” he said, “leading people to faith in Christ, and leading people in the Word of God, we must understand what it means to wrestle, not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in the heavenly places, which means we have to understand the nature of temptation as it intersects with discipleship.”

Alex Harris: How to Do Hard Things
00:33:12

It’s fair to say we’re coming out of a hard year. Everything we’ve done for the past 12 months has taken more effort and resulted in less productivity. Perhaps we would’ve been better prepared if we’d all read a book Alex Harris wrote with his brother Brett a dozen years ago called Do Hard Things. In it, Alex and Brett proposed that doing hard things prepares you to do even harder things. You should get up early, they said. Step out of your comfort zone. Do more than what’s required. Find a cause. Be better than your culture expects.

So how did this teenage message prepare Alex for this last year as an adult carrying weighty responsibilities? In this special bonus episode of The Gospel Coalition Podcast, TGC senior writer Sarah Zylstra asked Alex about his experience clerking for two U.S. Supreme Court justices and editing Harvard Law Review, his brother Josh's high-profile deconstruction of his faith, whether evangelicals invest too much import in presidential politics, and much more. You can hear more from Alex in Zylstra's new book, Gospelbound: Living with Resolute Hope in an Anxious Age.

How Revivalism Transformed the Way We Worship
00:43:05

Malachi Tresler led a breakout session at TGC’s 2019 Arizona Regional Conference titled, “The Impact of Revivalism on Contemporary Worship.” He taught from the thesis that revivalism has affected modern worship in two ways: pragmatism and emotionalism. Beginning with the Great Awakening in 1734, Tresler walked through a brief history of the birth of revivalism and how it shaped worship over the years, including how worship services are designed, their expected outcomes, and even our expectations for leadership in them. In response, he encouraged his listeners to remember three things in regard to worship:

  1. Worship is a goal in and of itself.
  2. We need a long view of God’s work.
  3. We must rely on the Spirit’s power for obedience.

Ray Ortlund on Renewal for Tired Pastors
00:44:53

Ray Ortlund led a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana titled, “Pastor, You and Your Church Can Get Healthy Again.” Framing the conversation according to Paul’s affirmation of the church in Colossians 2:5, he addressed the issue of church health according to one indicator that combined good order and firmness of faith. When held together in tandem, the combination of those two seemingly dichotomous glories, Ortlund posited, reveals a church that is informed, united, convicted, and steadfast, reflecting the complexity and vitality of Christ. He closed out the session with four encouragements for pastors seeking health:

  1. For your own soul’s sake, read The Whole Christ  by Sinclair Ferguson.
  2. In your public ministry, preach through whole books of the Bible, especially the books you’ve never dared to preach from.
  3. As you lead your church forward, never stop affirming your church.
  4. Spread a sense of cheerful adventure by showing your people that you are growing.

Essential Elements of an Effective Women’s Ministry
01:00:10

The Gospel Coalition hosted a panel discussion at the 2018 Women’s Conference with Colleen McFadden, Jen Wilkin, Courtney Doctor, and Danielle Anderson titled “Shaping Women’s Ministry in the Local Church: A Practical Discussion.” They defined and framed women’s ministry as holistic, in order to address all the needs of each woman—heart, soul, mind, and strength. Throughout the ensuing conversation, they touched on the very practical considerations necessary for building a healthy women’s ministry in the context of the local church. Many of the necessities were not unique to women’s ministry, per se, but certainly unique in their application, including development of a vision, strong support from top-down leadership, avoiding the ministry silo, growth, development of leaders, and telling great stories among many others.

David Platt on 5 Exhortations in Evangelism
00:48:53

David Platt delivered a message at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana titled “Paralysis and Forgiveness.” Expounding on the story of the paralyzed man brought to Jesus on a mat by his friends in Mark 2:1-12, Platt drew out the central theme of the book and the parable—the primacy and power of Jesus’s Word.

Platt also highlighted the two urgent needs of the paralytic—physical and spiritual—and the attributes of Jesus by which he was able to minister to both. He addressed four characteristics of the paralytic man’s four friends that should be understood and mimicked by all believers. From the parable, Platt then exposited five expectations for believers in evangelism.

John Piper on 4 Things That Had to Happen to Jesus
01:05:33

“If it costs me my life, to deny you, you possession-loving self, you praise-loving self . . . I'll die gladly to be with Jesus forever.” – John Piper

John Piper delivered a message at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Unashamed to Be Scorned with Jesus.” Expounding on Mark 8:31-38, Piper clearly laid out the gospel—that Christ suffered, was rejected, killed, and rose again, and the Father planned, prophesied, and performed it. As a response, Piper challenged listeners to five applications in evangelism.

  1. Tell unbelievers the news.
  2. Urge them to look at Jesus in the news.
  3. Warn them that to love this world—to love its possessions and to love its praise more than they love Jesus—will cost them their lives forever.
  4. Promise them in the name of Jesus that whatever must be denied in this life bears no comparison to the joy of being with Jesus for eternity.
  5. Make sure they know from the start that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom.

Learn from Suffering Siblings in Faraway Lands
00:38:25

Mindy Belz taught a workshop during the The Gospel Coalition 2018 Women’s Conference titled “The Wilderness Experiences: How God’s Suffering People in Faraway Lands Can Teach Us in the West.” Recounting her own experiences as a journalist and the deep oppression she witnessed toward religious people—Christians, in particular—around the world, she addressed the systems and situations that have led to such oppression and continue to drive it now. She also offered lessons she learned from the persecuted believers that can only be learned through facing down oppression.

Discipling College Students for the Long Haul
00:57:02

The Gospel Coalition hosted a workshop during the 2018 Women’s Conference titled “University and Beyond: Discipling Students for a Lifetime with Christ” with Aimee Joseph, Kori Porter, Danielle Sallade, and Shar Walker. 

The panel discussed the importance of intentional discipleship that prepares college students to follow Christ long after their university days are behind them. They addressed key elements of discipleship, teaching versus sharing, content and context of relational discipleship, biblical literacy, glorifying Christ through their studies, apologetics, facing cultural issues with a biblical world view, and a number of other specific topics regarding best practices for leading college students into deep, lasting relationship with Christ.

Fight the Drift of Mediocrity
00:44:56

Kevin DeYoung delivered a message at TGC’s 2019 Southwest Clarus Conference titled “Laodicea,” drawing from Revelation 3:14-22. Closing out a series on Jesus’s words to the seven churches, DeYoung addressed the spiritual apathy of the church in Laodicea as the worst of the seven, and pointed out that the most comfortable and prosperous church of the seven was, in Jesus’s estimation, the one who had gotten things wrong the most—they were a stale, stagnant, smelly church.

To those who said, “We are something,” Christ responded as a gracious warning, “You are far less than you think.” Many in the American church need to recognize that we share the same tendencies as Laodicea, therefore we need to humbly listen for similar words from Christ to our own churches.

Mar 14, 2021
Sexual Challenges and Your Church’s Response
00:24:04

Expounding on Mark 10:28-30, and in response to a question he received in regard to how Jesus views homosexuality, Sam Allberry spoke to how the gospel addresses people in committed homosexual relationships. First, he said, Jesus assumes people will leave things to follow him. Second, Jesus assumes the most costly things to leave will be familial and relational. But Jesus also says that however much a person might leave, it will absolutely be worth it.

The Christian Life Is J-Shaped
01:00:50

“The lower the depth of the suffering, the greater the resurrection.”

Paul Miller delivered a message at Bethlehem College & Seminary’s PasCon 2020 titled “J-Curve: Dying and Rising with Jesus in Everyday Life.” He introduces the idea of the J-Curve—a very simple idea that the letter “J” traces the path down into Jesus's death and up into his resurrection—from Philippians 3:7-11. Miller emphasized the idea that we share in the suffering of Christ and become like him in death, making two points and asking one question in regard to that truth:

  1. It’s strange.
  2. We usually flee from suffering.
  3. Aren’t Jesus’s sufferings over?

Future Liberation From Present Pain
00:30:01

“Hope is borrowing the joy of tomorrow, today.”

Jason Cook delivered a message at The Gospel Coalition Carolinas Regional Conference called “Groaning til Glory.” From Romans 8:18-25, Cook addressed the manner in which Christians must anchor themselves through storms and suffering, building from the thesis, “Suffering exists as a divine tool to wean us off of the lower pleasures of this world and encourages us to persevere because we have hope.”

Feb 21, 2021
Race in a Broken World
00:42:29

Danté Upshaw led a workshop with the Bay Area Chapter of The Gospel Coalition called “Race in the New Community.” Speaking of the new community created by God through Christ—his church—and sharing from his own experiences and Scripture, he opened a conversation around the necessity of handling race in a gospel-centered manner. Speaking from Ephesians 3, Upshaw encouraged a grace-filled approach to dealing with our divided history and experiencing the mystery of the gospel together.

Why Prayer Is Necessary for Revival
00:48:14

“True revival is not preached up. It's prayed down."

From the prayer recorded in Acts 4:23-31, H. B. Charles examined the manner through which the church experiences spiritual breakthrough and revival—when believers pray with confidence in the sovereignty of God. He detailed what moved the church to pray, what the church prayed, and what happened when the church prayed.

Tim Keller on Being Born Again
00:53:41

"The new birth is the power that God is going to use to regenerate the world." – Tim Keller

At The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Tim Keller delivered a message titled “You Must Be Born Again.” From John 3, Keller answers five questions in regard to the new birth Jesus commended unto Nicodemus:

  • Who is it for?
  • Where is it from?
  • What does it do?
  • How does it come?
  • How can you tell?

Keller focuses on the main principles of being born again: we must give up ourself to find our true self, lose our life to truly find it, and submit to Christ with every fiber of our being in order to find eternal life.

Don Carson on What We Can Learn from Lazarus
00:56:21

"One of the things that is most striking about the gospel is that at its heart, it is a gospel of surprises."

Don Carson delivered a message titled “Lazarus” at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis. Walking through Scripture, specifically the story of Lazarus, Carson addressed the surprise of the gospel, laying out four unexpected ways in which Jesus acted for our good and for the glory of God, culminating in the greatest surprise of all—his death and resurrection.

Navigating Ministry and Marriage as a Pastor’s Wife
00:32:59

During The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 Women’s Conference, Noël Piper, Latoya McCutcheon, Lauren Hansen, and Megan Hill participated in a panel discussion titled “Co-Laboring in the Gospel: A Conversation for Pastors’ and Elders’ Wives.” Through the conversation, they encouraged and challenged ministry wives, knowing that the role in which they walk is both difficult and a deep, lasting blessing. They discussed the struggles and joys, sacrifices and rewards, and the importance of finding security, strength, and direction in God’s Word.

How to Pursue Faithfulness in an Anxious Age (Re-Release)
00:53:04

Trevin Wax gave a message at TGC's 2017 National Conference, encouraging us to pursue faithfulness and remember the gospel, even in the midst of a culturally anxious and troubled age. Though many things have changed since originally delivered, the heart of Wax's message remains the same. 

“Yes, we are surrounded, but not by cultural challenges and the gospel’s enemies. We are surrounded by the large cloud of witnesses. We are not alone.” — Trevin Wax

Agents of Healing for Racial Division
01:03:57

“As long as God is continuing to reconcile men to himself, he's going to be continuing to reconcile men and women to one another.” — Kristie Anyabwile

During The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 Women’s Conference, Kristie Anyabwile, Courtney Doctor, Elicia Horton, Irene Sun, and Shar Walker participated in a panel discussion titled “The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation.” They addressed a number of sensitive, yet incredibly important, topics, from why conversations about racial reconciliation are still necessary to biblical passages that deal with division to how Christians should engage in these ongoing conversations and resources that are helpful for racially-tense discussions.

Building a Gospel-Driven Church Is Hard

Disclaimer: This breakout session was recorded before the 2019 global pandemic. Please follow your church body's guidelines when gathering in person for church services. 

Jared Wilson delivered a message in a breakout at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “The Gospel Driven Church,” sharing principles that can be found in his book by the same name. In the session, Wilson addressed the gospel recovery movement of the last decade or so, expressing delight in the desire of churches and leaders to set aside the attractional model of church in favor of a more biblically sound one. 

Wilson warned, however, that even those who have bought into a gospel driven focus must be careful that it not become simply nomenclature attached to the same old practices. He then delved into four practices of gospel driven churches and encouraged leaders to “continually slough off the baggage of doctrinal add-ons and distractions, cutting out the ever-rising innovations, theological and otherwise. Let us keep contending, keep trusting, keep returning to the ancient marker of the cross.”

David Wells: Voice in the Evangelical Wilderness
00:26:08

David Wells is one of the most influential theologians you’ve never heard of, helping to spark the Reformed resurgence 30 years ago. But if you’d met him as a child—a nonChristian growing up in Africa during the days of British colonialism—you never would’ve guessed the moves God would lead him through.

Ligon Duncan on Shocking Grace for a Pagan Woman
00:38:53

Ligon Duncan delivered a message from Mark 7:24-30 at the Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “A Pagan Woman Who Understands Grace.” In his message, Duncan addressed what the passage teaches about Jesus’s mission and what the Syrophoenician woman’s response teaches about his person.

The response of the disciples and even Jesus’s own words in response to the woman pleading with him for mercy are shocking, to say the least. Yet, after further review, the interchange reveals a pagan woman who understood grace in a way that even Jesus’s own followers did not and offers us the opportunity to do the same.

Mohler on Why Young Christians Should Prioritize Institutions
00:50:11

Al Mohler delivered a message in a breakout session at TGC’s 2019 National Conference titled “Why Younger Generations Should Invest in Institutions.” Culture in general, he argued, is moving toward an anti-institutional future as generations who do not value institutions grow older. They prefer movements to shape their identity rather than institutions. But institutions are the control centers of societies, culture is produced by institutions, and there is no civilization without institutions. Movements that do not eventually institutionalize fade away, as they lack the lasting stewardship necessary to survive. Christianity is no different. A walk through the scriptures reveals that Israel and the church are defined in institutional terms, and we must embrace those institutional realities in order to preserve and build our great faith.

Private Prayer Is Not Enough
00:57:51

John Onwuchekwa delivered a message in a breakout session at TGC’s 2019 National Conference titled “How Praying Together Shapes the Church.” 

Prayer both teaches and displays dependance on God in the most practical manner possible in the life of a believer. Utilizing the story of Christ’s interaction with his disciples and with the Father through prayer in Gethsemane, Onwuchekwa delineated Jesus’s prayerfulness as a regular practice and his desire to invite the disciples into his weakness—his full dependance on God. 

Facing the greatest adversity he would ever encounter, Jesus showed his followers the necessary way of preparation. Onwuchekwa encouraged the church to prioritize the practice of prayer so that we might also be strengthened for the adversity ahead.

Help Them Imagine: The Need for Creativity in Evangelism
00:52:39

"What captivates your heart moves you to act."

Glen Scrivener delivered a message in a workshop at the Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “How to Captivate the Imagination in Evangelism.” He discussed the role of the heart—and its imaginations—in shaping the decisive outcome of a person’s life, including the decision to respond to an evangelistic invitation. Scrivener discussed the biblical underpinnings of the idea and offered examples of creative evangelism, such as storytelling, with this idea at its core.

The True Meaning of Being Made in God's Image
00:55:25

Mike Cosper delivered a message during a workshop at the Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Made in the Image of God for the Good of the World.” During the session, he discussed the image of God and many of the characteristics of our Creator people are meant to reflect. Cosper then detailed three ways that reflecting the image of God is meant to bring about good in the world around us.

Needed: Titus 2 Women for Romans 1 World
00:44:32

Kristie Anyabwile delivered a message during a workshop at TGC’s 2018 Women’s Conference titled “Living as Titus 2 Women in a Romans 1 World.” Utilizing these two passages of Scripture, Anyabwile presents the problem and offers a solution—that we are living in a state of emergency and we need older and younger women who will actively invest in one another, respectively. The solution, she argues, would not only build the strength of believers to stand against sin, but also serve as a platform for Christian women to participate in the Great Commission, drawing others in need of Christ through the representation and declaration of the gospel.

David Platt's Plea Before You Vote (Bonus Episode)
00:19:58

In this  bonus episode, Collin Hansen and David Platt discuss the upcoming election, and what Christians should consider before voting—trusting in Jesus, no matter the outcome. To listen to the full conversation, check out Gospelbound on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and anywhere you listen to your podcasts. 

Show Notes: 

Elections have consequences, but not nearly as much as we probably think. That's what Collin Hansen concluded after reading David Platt's new book, Before You Vote: Seven Questions Every Christian Should Ask, published by Radical. 

Here's a sober dose of biblical reality from Platt in the book: 

"Even if we lose every freedom and protection we have as followers of Jesus in the United States, and even if our government were to become a completely totalitarian regime, we could still live in abundant life as long as we didn't look to political leaders, platforms or policies for our ultimate security and satisfaction."

It's not exactly the way you run fundraising and get out the vote operations in today's American politics, but Platt's book includes lots of counter-cultural advice, saturated with biblical references on humility, freedom, and duty, along with David's characteristic perspective informed by the global church. Platt serves as lead pastor of McLean Bible Church in Northern Virginia, a congregation where employment for many depends on the outcome of the November elections. David joins Collin on Gospelbound to discuss voting, abortion, and President Trump's visit to McLean Bible Church.

Danny Akin on Teaching Kids to Love the Nations
00:27:36

Danny Akin delivered a message in The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Pre-Conference titled “Little Global Hearts: How to Give Kids a Vision for the World.” Akin began with the eye-opening truth that, in 2019, still half of the world’s population was unreached with the gospel. Reaching them with the Good News will require believers who are raised up to be passionate about the Great Commission. 

Akin addressed a common question for many Christian parents, “How do we embed Great Commission DNA into our children?” by laying out ten practical principles for instilling into them a lifelong passion for Christ and the lost.

Leaders Need Tough Hides and Tender Hearts
00:57:24

Dan Doriani delivered a message in a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Only Be Strong and Courageous: Why Every Pastor Needs a Tender Heart and a Tough Hide.” The workshop explored the unique challenges faced by pastors, including five separate types of criticism. 

Doriani presented a composite of leaders in Scripture who are both “strong and courageous” and willing to “weep with those who weep,” Christ himself as the greatest example of one who was tough and enduring but also deeply loved those he shepherded. He also offered comfort from Scripture for hurting pastors dealing with these inevitable issues.

Paul Tripp on Gospel-Shaped Parenthood (Re-Release)
01:01:12

Parenting is much more than controlling the behavior of your children. Parenting is actually about heart exposure and heart change. We know only Jesus Christ can create the kind of lasting change in the human heart that will transform behavior. In this workshop, Paul Tripp (author of Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family) speaks on how to let the gospel shape what you say and do with the children who have been entrusted to your care.

How to Honestly Share the Gospel
00:58:59

Rico Tice delivered a message in a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Honest Evangelism: How to Talk About Jesus Even When It’s Tough.” The workshop explored the issues that make talking about Jesus difficult, such as doing the hard work of pursuing the lost and overcoming the fact that Christians are simply weird in the eyes of those around us. Tice also addressed four common responses Christians share in Britain to tougher settings for sharing the gospel that likely correspond with other Western settings, as well. And he encourages the church to develop soft hearts and tough skin around the simple idea that people without Christ spend eternity separated from God in a very real Hell.

Literary Tools to Understand Deborah
00:50:40

Kathleen Nielson delivered a breakout message at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Judging Deborah: Letting the Narrative and Poetry Speak.” In her message, she laid out six basic questions to ask when studying Old Testament narrative utilizing Judges 4-5 as an example text. Narrative and poetic texts can be easily misunderstood, so Nielson encouraged the audience to relish Deborah’s story and allow her to speak from the text. 

Kathleen pointed out that, like all of Scripture, the text is meant to point others to the greatness of the Lord through both Deborah’s story and her song. The six questions offered a framework for understanding a narrative text and mining it for every ounce of God-glorifying truth that may possibly be uncovered.

Glorify God by Embracing Diversity
01:01:53

The Gospel Coalition hosted a workshop titled “Embracing the Beauty of Diversity” with Jackie Hill Perry, Jamie Ivey, and Ithohan Omolere at the 2018 Woman’s Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The panel addressed the necessity and importance of diversity for Christians, beginning with God as the author of diversity and leading into how that should directly affect the lives of believers. They discussed what it means to celebrate diversity on an individual level, within families and friendships, and within the church.

Knowing the God of Our Doctrines
00:43:12

The Gospel Coalition hosted a breakout panel titled “The Priority of Scripture in Our Doctrine of God” with John Currie, David Garner, Jonny Gibson, and Scott Oliphint at the 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The panel described the role of the Bible in our understanding of the Doctrine of God as formative, doxological, and pastoral. Scripture informs us from the very beginning of who God is, drives us to respond to God in unfettered worship, and equips God’s people for the work of ministry.

How to Prepare for Tragedy
00:59:09

"God's sovereignty means that my son's death is not meaningless; it's not an accident. God is in control of all things, and that means that his death is meaningful."

From Psalm 130 and his own personal experience of tragedy and loss, Cameron Cole addressed the process of continuing to trust in Jesus through deep, lasting pain and suffering. He emphasized the importance of a rich, biblical theology to prepare believers to suffer with great hope.

Work for Your Lord, Not Just Your Boss
00:46:11

Eden Chen spoke at The Gospel Coalition’s first west coast conference in Fullerton, California, October of 2018, on the topic of faith and work. He focused on three practical topics for church leaders seeking to engage their people on the subject—calling, excellence, and evangelism.

Chen addressed the role of the church in developing each of those aspects of engaging faith in the workplace and how Christians can utilize the workspace as an incredible opportunity for both excellence and evangelism.

Noël Piper on Hope for All Life Stages
00:55:48

"A transition in the heart most often leads to a transition and change in life."

Noël Piper and her daughter, Talitha, teamed up to lead a workshop session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 Women’s Conference titled, “God’s Grace in Life’s Transitions.” Life, it often seems, is a constant stream of transitions—changes in our situations that can be major stressors in our lives. From moving to a new city to a job or school change to relationship changes or the death of a loved one, we face consistent change, and we must decide how we will allow ourselves to be shaped by it.

Noël and Talitha encourage us to learn about God and ourselves through each of the transitions he brings about in our lives and to carefully recognize how God works through those pivotal moments.

Why Should Pastors Stay? A Panel on Joyful Endurance
01:04:13

The Gospel Coalition hosted a breakout panel titled, “Faithful Endurance: The Joy of Shepherding People for a Lifetime” with H. B. Charles, Dave Harvey, Richard Phillips, Jeff Robinson, and Juan Sanchez at the 2019 National Conference to address the present trend of short stays in pastoral roles within churches.

Knowing that the average length of tenure for an evangelical pastor is slightly less than three years, it is no surprise that instability plagues our churches, which is neither healthy for the congregation nor the pastor. The panel discussed the value of faithful pastors who dedicate their lives to single congregations for decades at a time and the formative process through which faithfulness to a single congregation builds godly character into pastors and their churches.

Journey with John Flavel Toward Fearlessness
00:34:00

"What if every anxiety was an opportunity for you to look at the cross and remember that Jesus' sacrifice covered this circumstance? Do not be afraid."

Laura Powell led a workshop during The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 Women’s Conference titled, “Journey with John Flavel Toward Fearlessness.” Fear is a common emotion that drives each one of us in one way or another on a daily basis.

In her message, Powell defined the types of fear people face and referenced the writings of Puritan preacher John Flavel along the way to bring context and clarity. Powell’s message reminded her listeners—and reminds us today—that the fear of the Lord is good, that sin caused our fears to be fallen, and that our fears are redeemed by the life, death, and resurrection of Christ.

The Visual Discovery of God
00:40:03

During a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference, Josh Byers and Tim Challies teamed up to deliver a message titled, “How Visual Theology Displays the Truth About God.” There may be no time quite like the present in which the world has been so acutely aware of the importance of visual communication.

The power of images to shape culture, communication, and education is undeniable, including within the church. Yet imagery has been troublesome at times in church history. In order to help people within our churches become good theologians, we must teach sound doctrine in words, but we also need to engage them visually in order to undergird and communicate truth in ways we might not otherwise clearly accomplish.

Discussing Death: A Pathway to Deeper Hope
00:55:50

"Awareness of death weakens our attachments to false hopes."

Matthew McCullough delivered a message during a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled, “Remember Death: The Surprising Path to Living Hope” based on his book by the same name. McCullough focuses on the importance of paying careful attention to death, removing the taboo around the subject, allowing it to deepen our spiritual walk, and encourage us with hope.

In a culture that prioritizes pleasures, certainly death seems a morbid and unexpected topic of conversation. Yet McCullough focuses on two benefits in the lives of Christians, not in simply preparing for death, but in knowingly living with death on the horizon—learning to number our days.

Jackie Hill Perry on 'Gay Girl, Good God'
00:57:20

Jackie Hill Perry delivered a message during a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Gay Girl, Good God: The Story of Who I Was and Who God Has Always Been” based on her book by the same name. In it, she addresses same-sex attraction through her own story couched within the larger story of God. She encourages listeners to trust that that the simplicity of the gospel message—even when it seems to bear no fruit—can and does lead people out of sin and into a life that glorifies God. She calls the church to think holistically and frame the work of loving and serving same-sex attracted people in the fullness of the gospel. Simply love those in need of the gospel and help them understand it in its simplest form—Jesus loves you and died for your sins.

How to Share the Gospel for All to Hear
00:54:46

Sam Chan delivered a message during a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “How to Tell Your Friends About Jesus Without Becoming That Guy.” He taught that many of the things that we believe will help to convince others of the truth of the gospel—sovereignty of God aside—such as facts, evidence, and data, are actually the least powerful factors in doing so. Far more powerful are community and experiences, which means that the most effective methodologies for helping others to hear and understand the gospel include experiences that offer a merging of Christian and non-Christian friends and the opportunity to listen and learn from one another. From these things, fueled by prayer, opportunities for gospel conversations will inevitably arise.

Sexual Sanctification Is Not the Absence of Temptation
00:54:50

"Change is not the absence of temptations but the raw spiritual ability to be holy even in the midst of temptations."

Christopher Yuan delivered a message during a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Holy Sexuality: Sex, Desire, and Relationships Shaped by God’s Grand Story.” Yuan taught that sexual identity has become an idol within our culture, and sexual freedom has become the religion of the land as a result of our hearts being set in defiance against God’s perfect design. Though sanctification is critical activity for every believer, he taught, the Christian life constitutes far more than the avoidance of sinful behavior. It begins with answering our ontological questions in terms of the Imago Dei and developing a “theological anthropology”—recognizing that our identity is not defined by our sin, but by Christ.

Want to Read Great Literature? Start Here
00:59:09

Karen Swallow Prior spoke at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in a breakout session called, “Why, How, and What to Read.” The relationship between God and his people, she posited, has always focused on the centrality of the Word with a specific emphasis on written words. In fact, it may be said that reading is a supernatural gift from God—one that can be accepted, rejected, or lost. It is therefore incumbent upon all believers to cultivate the ability to read the right things, in the right ways, in order to steward the wonderful gift of reading that both enriches our lives and deepens our relationship with the Word who took on flesh and dwelt among us.

Sovereignty in the Midst of Suffering
00:55:36

Harold Kim delivered a message in a breakout session titled “Bittersweet Sovereignty in Joseph’s Story and Ours” at The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 West Coast Conference. From Genesis chapters 37 and 50, Kim addressed three repeating themes in the life of Joseph: sins, sovereignty, and salvation. Driven by sinful, generational family dysfunction, Joseph’s life spiraled into chaos, yet God was sovereign over and working through it all. In the same way, we find hope in the promise that God causes all things—even the horrendous, atrocious dysfunction that often befalls us because of our own sin—to work together for our good.

Trip Lee on the Paradox of Being Human
00:49:00

Trip Lee led a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana titled "Incredibly Normal: The Shocking Truth About Who You Really Are." He addressed the identity of believers and what it means to be a Christian on a planet filled with more than seven billion other humans. 

The reality is that God made us in his image for his own purposes, knows each of us intimately, and loves us in a way that only he can, making us unique in the world. We are also incredibly normal—unexceptional—when compared to the greatness and glory of God. Therefore, our identity must be rooted in Christ, not in ourselves, lest we fall to either side and either become entitled or feel inferior. Both are distortions and keep us from focusing on who God made us to be.

Kingdom Impact Through the Arts
01:01:03

Todd Goranson and Steve Rooks spoke during a breakout session titled “Evangelism in the Arts” at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. In this message, they addressed the efficacy of arts as a tool for evangelism, arguing that art has its own way of conveying and portraying the beauty and the complexity of God's creation. It also provides a means for reaching communities and individuals who might not be inclined to walk into a church on Sunday morning or actively seek knowledge or relationship with Christ with the message of the gospel. The arts are a vehicle through which the gospel can effectively impact the culture for the sake of Jesus Christ.

Christian Formation According to Edwards
01:03:28

Kyle Strobel led a breakout session at The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 West Coast Conference in Fullerton, California, titled Jonathan Edwards, Love, and the Formation of the Christian. He discussed Edward’s understanding of love, Christian formation, theology, and spirituality, arguing that we need to develop a robust spiritual theology to help the church navigate lived existence—actual lived life with God in the Spirit. 

As did Jonathan Edwards, Strobel worked to inextricably tie theology and praxis and discourage the approach that makes the two disparate disciplines. The practice of contemplation about God, then, becomes the beatific motivator for sharing in the life of God.

The Good News of Romans 8
00:45:11

“No one can thwart God's good plans for us. No one can ultimately turn God's good plans for us against us.”

Trillia Newbell delivered a message in a breakout session as part of The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, entitled If God Is for Us. From Romans 8:31-39, Newbell encouraged attendees to trust that the verdict has been determined for believers in Christ, and it is in our favor! By reiterating a series of rhetorical questions Paul laid out in Romans 8, Newbell emphasized the rightful conclusion that if God is for us, no one can ever prevail against us, no matter the circumstance.

“More than conquerors” is not a silly slogan to get you through your morning workout; it is a world-changing truth that he who loved us has given us the victory and nothing will ever thwart it! That is news too amazing to ignore or to keep to ourselves.

Opening Your Bible? Turn on Your Imagination
01:02:38

Sandra McCracken and Russ Ramsey led a breakout session as part of The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, entitled Reading Scripture with an Engaged Imagination. The songwriter and author, respectively, discussed the role the imagination plays in reading, understanding, and conveying the content of Scripture. 

Even for individuals with a high view of Scripture, who believe the Bible is authoritative and reliable, Ramsey and McCracken argue that reading it well requires a fully engaged imagination—not because it is lacking in any way, but because that’s what our humanity demands. They discussed how, in prose and songwriting, they mine the detail of Scripture and use their imaginations to faithfully flesh out its context and significance. In doing so, they encourage others to engage Scripture in the same manner no matter their specific vocations.

As part of The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kevin DeYoung led a breakout session entitled Grace Defined and Defended: The Continuing Relevance of the Canons of Dort 400 Years Later. In this session, DeYoung argued for theological precision—the wise measurement of the words used to describe God’s interaction with his people—via a close look at why and how the Canons of Dort came to be. When it comes to the doctrines of our faith, we ought to hunger for the specifics because they matter deeply.

Hope for Exhausted Mothers
00:48:05

Aimee Joseph leads a workshop session at the 2018 TGC Women’s Conference on the necessity of the grace of Christ in motherhood. Emphasizing the lack of a “magic bullet,” Joseph encourages mothers from Hebrews 12:12 not to grow weary in their work but to allow God to train and strengthen them. It is Christ who keeps you, and in doing so keeps you from falling into the trap of either simply enduring or enthroning your children.

Shai Linne on the Gospel and Ethnic Unity
00:54:03

Division has plagued the church around this topic, which stands in stark contrast to Jesus’s prayer for unity in John 17. Though there have lately been helpful conversations around this topic, certainly much remains to be done. Linne offers three biblical directives for engaging in these needed discussions. This message was originally given at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
