“Union with Christ is that driving principle that transforms our gospel ministry.” – Sinclair Ferguson
The treasure of our union with Christ glitters throughout the pages of the New Testament. The massive New Testament emphasis on this golden doctrine should be reflected in our own study and, for pastors, in our ministry. It is because Christians are united to Christ that all of God’s promises are “yes” and through this union that we have received every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.
Jon Payne encourages pastors to dig deeply into this doctrine for the benefit of their own souls and to infuse its driving principle into their pastoral ministry. He taught this breakout at the Pastors Conference: Union with Christ and Everyday Pastoring.
