The object of Christian ministry

"We take for granted that the object of the
Christian ministry is to convert sinners and to
edify the body of Christ. No faithful minister
can possibly rest short of this. Applause,
fame, popularity, honor, wealth-­all these are
vain. If souls are not won, if saints are not
matured, our ministry itself is vain."
Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)
