Iain Murray spoke to us in chapel this morning and gave a biographical sketch of Andrew Bonar. And in concluding he spoke of how Bonar never thought himself a great preacher, and complained greatly of his inconsistent communion with Christ and then said something like this:
The less we know Christ the easier it seems to us to preach Christ. But the more we know Christ the more difficult preaching seems, for we cannot give Him what is due, we are but dust.
May the day never come when we think it easy to preach Christ, but may we always, because of our communion with Him, be aware of our utter dependence on Him to grant fruit in the foolishness of preaching.
