The ablest minister

(J. C. Philpot, "Meditations on the
Preceptive Part of the Word of God

He is the ablest minister who is . . .
  soundest in doctrine,
  deepest in experience,
  most godly in practice.

He must have also a gracious experience in
his own soul of the truths which he preaches,
in their savour, sweetness, and power.
