'A chapter we read this morning tendered my spirit and raised it in aspirations to the God of my help. Describing by what a minister ought to prove himself a minister of God these two verses particularly took hold of me - "By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left"'
