Why the Gospel Must Affect me Before it can Affect My Congregation

Tuesday, March 01, 2005

On the heels of the last paragraph of the last blog, this comment came to mind which is worthy of repeating.

When my
is not
and comes not up
with my mouth,
I always think it
time to quit.
What comes not from the heart,
I have little hope it will go to
the hearts of others.
- Donald Cargill
Scottish field preacher from 1662-1680 who responded with the above after being
'reproached for not giving an ample meal to hungry souls,who greatly prized the bread of life.'
(The Preachers of Scotland, by William Blaikie, p. 169)
