Take your stand as the ambassador of Jesus Christ, sent of God to sinful men. Believe that He who sends you will not have you speak in vain. Seek the salvation of those who hear you, as you do your own. Forget yourselves so as to behold nothing but the glory of God, and the salvation of your hearers. You will then tremble more before God, but you will tremble less before men. – J. W. Alexander, Thoughts on Preaching, 163.
