Robert Murray M’Cheyne on a Preacher’s Life

ImageA man is what he is on his knees before 
God–and nothing more! In great measure, 
according to the purity of the instrument
will be success. It is not great talents which 
God blesses–so much as great likeness to 
Jesus! A holy minister is a powerful weapon 
in the hand of God! 

Study universal holiness of life. Your whole 
usefulness depends on this; for your sermons 
last but an hour or two–but your life preaches 
all the week!
 If Satan can only make a minister 
covetous; or a lover of praise, or of pleasure, or 
of fine eating–he has ruined your ministry!

“Lord, make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be!”
