Important Qualities of a Minister

In Reformed Baptist Fellowship on August 31, 2012 at 4:39 pm

“One of the most necessary and important qualities of a minister, my friends, is this, that he is animated by a sincere and ardent zeal to discharge his office properly and accomplish something of real value in the sight of God, namely, to pluck every soul that has been entrusted to him from hell, lead it to God, make it truly godly, and bring it into heaven. A faithful minister must have definitely given up seeking after good times, money and possessions, honor and renown in this world. His supreme joy must be the assurance that his labor in the Lord is not in vain. That must be the most delightful reward for all his great and grievous anxieties and concerns.”  – C.F.W. Walther

  1. May the Lord our God impress this on the souls of the men that stand in our pulpits today. May they be convicted to preach the Word, feed the sheep, mature the saints and thereby glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.

  2. Amen. Wonderful counsel from an old Lutheran minister. May we have ears to hear!
