Best advice given to me about preaching: From Peter Stine: "Peake?" "Yes sir." "You sure this is what you want to do with your life?" "Yes sir." "Well, there will be people out there who will try you to your very core but you just preach the gospel. God will make the trees fall where he wants them."
From John Stott: "Just preach the gospel. Just preach the gospel."
