The Glory of the Ministry

In 1911, in his book The Glory of the Ministry, A.T. Robertson quoted James Denney: “There always have been men in the world so clever that God could make no use of them.  They could never do His work; they  were so lost in admiration of their own.  God’s work never depended on them, and it doesn’t depend on them now.  The power is not the product of human genius, or cleverness, or technique, or ingenuity; the power of the gospel is in the gospel.”  (1 Cor 3:7, 2 Cor 4:5)
