Watch Your Life (Session VI)
The cross of Christ is to appear not just in a minister’s preaching, but in his life. It is important to have a balance of personal heart examination and preparing a message from the text each Sunday. The character of a minister must be more persuasive than one’s speech. Paul exhorts in I Timothy 4:16 to persist in keeping a close watch on yourself and on the doctrine.
