A Word for Preachers...William Still on the Spirit's Work in Preaching

"There is of course, only one Teacher, the Holy Spirit (cf. John 14:16, 17, 26; 6:7-15). And if the Holy Spirit is not in our hearts, in our life and in all our teaching of the Word of God (and He will not be if our characters are not being moulded according to the moral and spiritual pattern of the Word), then we had better not open our mouths. For there is nothing so boring, so stale, flat and unprofitable as holy things retailed in the absence of the Spirit."
