“Preach the word” (2 Timothy 4:2) was the advice David Kinghorn gave to his son [Joseph] before the latter’s ordination. . . . " ‘Preach the word,’ plainly, faithfully, wholely, without mincing it; in order to which study it closely, let it be engrafted into your heart, blossom in your meditation, and bear fruit in your daily conversation and public labours. Preach it in your actions, and may Jesus Christ, the essential Logos, be in every theme you treat in public, and be your pattern to copy after in your conduct, and may you enjoy in the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit in leading you into all truth."
