For I Timothy 3:2-7
My God, what qualifications are these! and how rash was I to undertake such a work, without sitting down and counting the cost, whether I was able to finish it! Thou only canst supply all my defeats, which I beseech thee to do.
Enable me, I beseech thee, to come as near as possible to this character; that I may teach the mysteries, defend the faith, maintain the truths of the gospel; that I may be a pattern to my flock, edify the church, both by my discourses and example, and hearty zeal for the salvation of souls; and a care to secure my flock from the corruptions of the age. Amen – Thomas Wilson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Wilson_(bishop)
