Spurgeon on Holiness

Here is a quote from "CH Spurgeon on Spiritual Leadership." by Steve Miller; a great look into the heart behind the incredible and far-reaching ministry of the prince of preachers.

An additional benefit observed by Spurgeon is that holiness, because it is so supremely important, can make up for certain deficiencies we might have: You must have holiness; and, dear brethren, if you should fail in mental qualifications (though I hope you will not), and if you should have a slender measure of the oratorical faculty (though I trust you will not), yet, depend upon it, a holy life is, in itself, a wonderful power, and will make up for many deficiencies; it is, in fact, the best sermon the best man can ever deliver.
