Be careful how you hear preaching this weekend!
It is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience, they are not the better for having heard the truth.
A. W. Tozer (1897 – 1963)
I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing.
Martin Luther (1483-1546)
I REALLY struggle with this!
“The plainest words are the profitablest oratory in the weightiest matters.”
Richard Baxter (1615-1691)
Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. From such folly deliver us, O Lord.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
The ministry of proclaiming the gospel is the ministry, not of testimony merely, but of reconciliation. It has as its object the actual reconciliation of the whole world.
B.B. Warfield (1851-1921)
Pastor, on this Monday, don’t fret about what you think you didn’t say adequately or wish you had said differently or even not at all. Take heart from George Whitefield’s words:
“Other men may preach better than I, but no man can preach a better gospel.”
George Whitefield (1714 – 1770)
