The Favor of Jesus Christ

Greg Strand – November 15, 2012 Leave a comment

God save you from the sin of paring down the gospel to suit the pride of men.  God grant that you may deliver your message straight and full and plain.  Only so, whatever else you may sacrifice, will you have one thing — the favor of the Lord Jesus Christ.

J. Gresham Machen, “Prophets False and True,” in God Transcendent (Edinburgh, 1982), 125.

Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
