But pastoral ministry demands not only fruitful proclamation of the gospel, but also personal holiness. It demands not only doctrinal precision, but also godly affection; not only public proclamation, but also pleasing God in the privacy of our hearts. Pastoral ministry is not only about our minds, but also about our souls.
