“In 1854, at the young age of twenty, Spurgeon became pastor of a church in London (New Park Street Chapel), which later became the Metropolitan Tabernacle. Spurgeon had barely been in London twelve months when a severe case of cholera swept through London. Spurgeon recounts his efforts to care for and visit the numerous sick in the midst of horrific conditions: “All day, and sometimes all night long, I went about from house to house and saw men and women dying, and, oh, how glad they were to see my face! When many were afraid to enter their houses lest they should catch the deadly disease, we who had no fear about such things found ourselves most gladly listened to when we spoke of Christ and of things Divine.”16”
Brian Croft, Visit the Sick: Ministering God's Grace in Times of Illness

“The most important area for a pastor to watch over is his relationship with God, his need to cultivate a deep, genuine, transparent, and heartfelt daily walk with Jesus. Pastors are first and foremost individuals who have been transformed by the gospel of Jesus. They need grace. They need forgiveness. They need peace in their soul. This investment of time is not something a pastor does just to have a better ministry, though it will likely make him a better man, husband, father, and pastor of his flock. But walking passionately with Jesus every day is something every pastor needs, and it is an amazing and precious gift from the heavenly Father.”

“If you want to make virtually any believer feel inadequate, ask him about his prayer life.”
