J. I. Packer on Charles Simeon

Here is quote I came upon that I thought blog-worthy. At least, it's a good reminder for myself of what is most important. Here is J.I. Packer on Charles Simeon:

The quality of his preaching was but a reflection of the quality of the man himself. And there can be little doubt that the man himself was largely made in the early morning hours which he devoted to private prayer and devotional study of the Scriptures. … Such costly self-discipline made the preacher. That was primary. The making of the sermon was secondary and derivative. (Preach the Word, 152)
