The Ministry of the Word.

"One part of our work, and that the most excellent, because it tendeth to work on many, is the public preaching of the word - a work that requireth greater skill, and especially greater life and zeal, than any of us bring to it. It is no small matter to stand up in the face of the congregation, and deliver a message of salvation or damnation, as from the living God, in the name of our Redeemer. It is no easy matter to speak so plain, that the ignorant may understand us; and so seriously, that the deadest heart may feel us; and so convincingly, that the contradicting cavillers may be silenced." 

- Richard Baxter, The Reformed Pastor
