Charlges Hodge on Infant Church Membership and Covenant Nurture (Part 2): The Duty of Ministers of the Gospel

“Does a pastor desire to render his own ministry as profitable as possible to the young people of his charge?  He cannot take a course more directly adapted to attain this object than to attend to them; to meet them frequently and in private, and as a body; to catechize them; and to render them familiar with his person, and his modes of thinking and speaking; and to imbue their minds with those elementary principles of divine knowledge which will prepare them to hear him in the pulpit with intelligence, with respect, and with profit… There can be no doubt that one great reason why so many young people receive so little profit from the regular discourses of their minister, is, that he has taken so little previous pains to gain their attention by previous instruction; to prepossess them in favor of the substance and mode of his teaching; to fill their tender, susceptible minds with those simple views of gospel truth which he carries out, and impresses in his more studied discourse from the sacred desk. 1,212 more words
