The one who profits me the most!
"Be an example to all believers . . .
in what you teach,
in the way you live,
in your love, your faith and your purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
I will name some of the criteria by which I measure the helpfulness of a preacher or writer to my own soul.
The one who profits me the most, is the man . . .
whose ministry brings the most awe of a holy and sovereign God into my heart,
who reveals my sinfulness and failures to me,
who conveys the most light on my path of duty,
who makes Christ most precious to me,
who encourages me to press forward along the narrow way.
"Watch your life and doctrine closely." 1 Timothy 4:16
