John Newton on Preaching

Saturday, September 22, 2007

“If you are enabled, at some times, to speak to the people with power, and to resemble Samson, when, in the greatness of his strength, he bore away the gates of the city, you will perhaps, at others, appear before them like Samson when his locks were shorn, and he stood in fetters. So that you need not tell the people you have no sufficiency in yourself,”

– John Newton, On the Snares and Difficulties attending the Ministry, The Works of John Newton, volume 1.
