Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effectual working of his power.
The Rev. S. Pearce, being one week day evening in London, asked a friend where he could hear a good sermon. Two places were mentioned. "Well," said he, "tell me the characters of the preachers, that I may choose." "Mr. D—," said his friend, "exhibits the orator, and is much admired for his pulpit eloquence." "And what is the other?" "Why, I hardly know what to say of Mr. C—; he always throws himself in the background, and you see his Master only." "That's the man for me, then," said the amiable Pearce; "let us go and hear him."
