6 Distinguishing Marks of a Call to Gospel Ministry

Steven Lawson: “Lloyd-Jones identified six distinguishing marks of this divine summons to the pulpit. He himself had felt the gravity of each of these realities weighing heavily upon his own soul. He believed the same spiritual forces should come to bear on all preachers.”

A humble Christian studies his own infirmities, and another’s excellencies.
