Ten days ago, I was given the privilege to speak at the annual conference of the Biblical Counseling Training Center of Arizona, which finds its home at Grace Covenant Church. It was a joy to spend a few days with men and women representing ten local churches interested in the personal ministry of the Word to the hearts of believers. It was also a great joy to worship with the Grace Covenant family on the Lord’s Day during which I brought an exposition of 2 Corinthians 3, particularly the last verse: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”
If you are interested in thinking more deliberately about the cooperative work of the Holy Spirit and the believer in progressive sanctification, you listen to the Sunday morning sermon linked below at Sermon Audio. The audio files for the whole conference, including workshops, will soon be available. I will let you know when they are and how you can get hold of them.
