Muller the Preacher

Many Christians are aware of George Muller, the praying man, but he was also a preaching man – a pastor of a congregation. This is a small quote from “The Autobiography of George Muller” where he gives a bit of advice on preaching.

“If the preacher strives to speak according to the rules of this world, he may please many, particularly those who have a literary taste. But he is less likely to become an instrument in the hands of God for the conversion of sinners or for the building up of the saints. Neither eloquence nor depth of thought makes a truly great preacher. Only a life of prayer and meditation will render him a vessel ready for the Master’s use and fit to be employed in the conversion of sinners and in the edification of the saints.”

Thanks for reading.
