William Still on the pastor’s relationship to the Word of God


I love the Word of God and spend lots of time in it and with it. I was converted under the ministry of William Still and love this little summary of the pastor’s relationship to the Word of God.

To be true pastors, your whole life must be spent in knowing the truth of God’s Word, not only verbally, propositionally, theologically, but religiously, that is, devotionally, morally, in worshipping Him who it reveals, and in personal obedience to Him whose commands it contains, in all the promised grace and threat of those commands. To be pastors you must be “fed men”, not only in knowledge, but in wisdom, grace, humility, courage, fear of God, and fearlessness of men. [The Word of the Pastor by William Still p10]
