Quotes (105)

by

In a tract published by that excellent society ‘The Open Air Mission,’ I notice the following:

QUALIFICATIONS FOR OPEN-AIR PREACHING

1. A good voice.
2. Naturalness of manner.
3. Self-possession.
4. A good knowledge of Scripture and of common things.
5. Ability to adapt himself to any congregation.
6. Good illustrative powers.
7. Zeal, prudence, and common sense.
8. A large loving heart.
9. Sincere belief in all he says.
10. Entire dependence on the Holy Spirit for success.
11. A close walk with God by prayer.
12. A consistent walk before men by a holy life.

If any man has all these qualifications, the Queen had better make a bishop of him at once, yet there is not one of these qualities which could well be dispensed with.
— Charles Spurgeon
