The Diligent Pastor is the Most Welcome Preacher

"...His position gave him the right to preach; but, Monday to Saturday, he was not purchasing the right to be heard.
Just as our prayers for those whom we serve are the product of our love for them, and also cultivate a context of love for our pulpit ministry, so - possibly to an even greater extent - does our 'care for souls', displayed in the home, at the fireside, by the bed, in the hospital, in wedding preparation, in baptismal classes, in preparation for church membership.  The diligent pastor is the most welcome preacher." - Motyer, Preaching?, p134
