Marks of Maturity in the Ministry (Part 3)

"Christ chose this weapon (the Word) out of all the others, and used it in His earliest conflict, so, too, He used it when no man was near. The value of Holy Scripture is not alone seen in public teaching or striving for truth, its still small voice is equally powerful when the servant of the Lord is enduring personal trial in the lone wilderness. The severest struggles of a true Christian are usually unknown to any buy himself. Not in the family do we meet the most subtle temptations, but in the closet, not in the shop so much as in the recesses of our own spirit do we wrestle with principalities and powers. For these dread duels, 'It Is written' is the best sword and shield. Scripture to convince another man is good; but Scripture is most required to console, defend and sanctify our own soul." - C. H. Spurgeon, Spurgeon's Expository Encyclopedia, Vol.15, p. 222
