The Essential Ministry of the Body of Christ

The Gospel Coalition 2013 Clarus Regional Conference


In this 56-minute session, Paul Tripp, international conference speaker and Executive Director of the Center for Pastoral Life and Care, points out that, if we are to live in the Body of Christ as God has called us to, then we automatically become ministers of His grace to each other. And that’s hard to do.

Every sin you encounter is an opportunity to participate with God in showing grace to the sinner in the midst of their sin. All too often we view sin against us or around us as a violation of our own perceived rights and rules. Instead, embrace the call to administer God’s grace to those who sin around you. Show them to the God who can and will forgive them and transform them.
