The Minister as Matchmaker

Geoff ChapmanFound, Linked, Great Quotes0 Comments

Anyone who preaches would do well to remember this description of the job by the Puritan Richard Sibbes:

Ministers by their calling are friends of the Bride, and to bring Christ and his Spouse together, and therefore ought, upon all good occasions, to lay open all the excellencies of Christ, and amongst others, as that he is highly born, mighty, One ‘in whom all the treasures of wisdom are hid,’ Col. 2:3, etc., so likewise gentle, and of a good nature, and of a gracious disposition.
