 Your life preaches all the week-M'Cheyne

Your life preaches all the week

(Robert Murray M'Cheyne, 1813—1843)

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

Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your
thoughts, your words from God. In great measure,
according to the purity and perfections of the
instrument, will be success.

It is not great talents God blesses, so much
as great likeness to Jesus. A holy minister is
an awesome weapon in the hand of God.

Quote: A holy minister is an awesome weapon in the hand of God.

Are there any 'awesome weapons' that visit this forum?

If not, why not?

How do we know if we meet the criteria?

Quote: Give yourself to prayer...

Quote: If satan can make you a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating...

These all pertain to the flesh, and note, it says, if satan can make you... not God.

Thanks for the post. It spoke to me.

God bless.

I heard another excellent phrase from MCheyne once saying that our words need to be "[b]owned by God[/b]."
