Dr. Bruce Stewart opened the meeting of Synod with a sermon from 2 Timothy 2. He asked the presbyters to ask ourselves what our motivation for ministry is. He focused on "doing our best to be approved workmen in Christ's kingdom."
The challenge before us was to ask ourselves these three questions:
1. Is the Lord well pleased?
2. Is the work well done?
3. Is the Word well used?
This was great encouragement as we begin to do Christ's work this week.
