Preaching includes felt struggles for people


“I began to speak, as the Lord gave me utterance. At first, the people seemed unaffected, but in the midst of my discourse the power of the Lord Jesus came upon me, and I felt such a struggling within myself for the people as I scarce ever felt before. The hearers began to be melted down immediately and to cry much, and we had good reason to hope the Lord intended good for many.”

George Whitefield, quoted in Archibald Alexander, The Log College, page 19.

(HT: Christ is deeper still)

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
