|Dr. John MacArthur
“Sermons should never be the primary goal of a pastor’s Bible study; they should only be the overflow of it.” A maxim John MacArthur has followed for more than 40 years, pastoring the same congregation that entire time, and giving leadership—and voice—to the worldwide media ministry known as Grace to You.
Grace to You reaches millions of believers every week on radio and television, and millions more via the Internet, with teaching that relentlessly affirms the truth of Scripture, the most critical thing anybody can ever learn. Truth that confronts sin and displays God’s mercy. Crushes anxiety and gives joy in trials. Strengthens any relationship and reveals God’s will. And, woven throughout everything they do, is the Truth—the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanks to hundreds of radio partners and a diverse body of faithful supporters, they’re unleashing God’s truth, one verse at a time, every day in English and Spanish. (Their “Gracia a Vosotros” broadcast features John’s sermons adapted for and preached to a Spanish-speaking audience—unique in Spanish-language radio.) More than one million copies of The MacArthur Study Bible have been distributed in English; it’s also available in seven other languages, with more translations in progress. With each new volume added to John’s New Testament commentary series, pastors and lay leaders find more and more of what they need to equip their people.
And with the audio and transcripts for all of John’s sermons (about 3,000) available free at gty.org, John’s verse-by-verse Bible teaching is challenging God’s people like never before—in 192 countries, and counting. They’re seeing about 50,000 sermon downloads per day.
What do those facts and figures show? Simply, God has given Grace to You a reach far beyond anything they could have imagined. They’re humbled by the opportunity to make truth known. They exist for no other reason.
