The Man God Uses Must Be Brave

Vance Havner :God pity the preacher who has grown cross-eyed
watching certain faces in his congregation to
observe whether the message is acceptable or not.

“The fear of man bringeth a snare” (Prov.29:25)
and the chilly countenances of resentful listeners
who must not be disturbed have taken the heart
out of more preachers than have all the infidels
and higher critics.

Well did Spurgeon say,

“We admire man who was firm in the faith
four hundred years ago
but such a man is a nuisance today.”
