Excerpt from The Work of Christ in the World: Four Sermons Preached Before the University of Cambridge on the Four Sundays Preceding Advent in the Year of Our Lord 1854
It seems then to be the duty of each preacher in his turn to endeavour to fill in his own part in the great outline Of Divine knowledge, not intruding himself into the province of others, or aiming at anything for which he has not been qualified, either by the direction of his studies, or the range of his ministerial duties. Those whom God has not gifted with much learning, may still fulfil their calling by speaking forth words Of truth and soberness.
The inexhaustible abundance of the word of God and the infinite variety of the works and duties of the ministry, give ample scope for such a cycle of preachers, in which each comes in his turn to tell what the Spirit of God has enabled him to learn, or what the power of Christ has enabled him to do.
