The need of today’s ministry is believing scholarship joined with earnest spirituality, the one springing from the other like fruit from a root. The need is Bible doctrine, so understood and felt that it sets men on fire.
Doctrine is useless if it is not accompanied by a holy life. It is worse than useless; it does positive harm. Something of ‘the image of Christ’ must be seen and observed by others in our private life, and habits, and character, and doings.
