Ministers are called stars. Therefore they must shine by word and doctrine in the firmament of the church. ' Here was a light set upon a hill, the bright morning star shining to all who were round about. Christ calls his ministers 'the light of the world' (Matthew 5:14). Therefore they must be always giving forth their luster. Their light must not go out until their last breath—or until violent death as an extinguisher puts it out.  Christ's ministers must take all occasions of doing good to others, in regard of the work which they are about—which is saving of souls.
Their work is great. It is a work which will take up their head and heart. ' (2 Corinthians 2:16). Oh pray for them! Christ indeed, when he ascended the mount and was to preach, needed none of the people's prayers for him. He had a sufficient stock—the divine nature to supply him. But all his under-officers in the ministry need prayer. If Paul, who abounded in the graces of the Spirit and supernatural revelations, begged prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:25), then surely those ministers need prayer, who do not have such revelations.

There is a blessedness promised to all who live godly. 'This is the promise he has promised us—even eternal life' (1 John 2:25). We are not excluded—but may come in for a child's part.
