Faithful and Fruitful

The Gospel Coalition Conference 2013


In this 49-minute panel discussion, Matt Chandler, the Lead Pastor of Teaching at The Village Church in Dallas, Texas and author of Creature of the Word and The Explicit Gospel, looks at 1 Corinthians 3 to answer the question, “Can we make our ministries fruitful?” Instead of believing that someone’s fruitful ministry comes from his or her own skill, we must focus on the God who works through His people.

As you look at your own ministry, remember that God is the one who crafts His people and His church. Strive to be actively faithful with the work that God has entrusted to you, and rest in the knowledge that He has chosen to work through you.
