The Preachers Work and Exhortation

The work of every preacher is to be a watchmen and do our best to discover and declare the fullness of Christ and the emptiness of the creature and the snares of the great deceiver.  We should do so to the fullness of the measure of the gifts and graces which are given to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Let not God’s preachers consider their smallness or weakness, for our God has chosen the smallest and weakest of His saints to confound those worldly wisdom and earthly might.   Believers, let us remember this, that life is short, our duties are many, our assistance is great and our reward is sure.  Therefore we faint not, hold on and hold up in the ways of well doing and Heaven (Christ the king of Heaven) shall make amends for it all.

Consider this good counsel and “never let go out of your minds the thoughts of the crucified Christ.” Let this be meat and drink unto you.  Let this be your sweetness and consolation, your honey and your desire, your reading and meditation, your life, death and resurrection.
