That Was A Sweet Sermon

On the temptations a preacher faces to pride and liftings up of heart:

Mr. John Bunyan having preached one day with peculiar warmth and enlargement, some of his friends, after service was over, took him by the hand, and could not help observing what a sweet sermon he had delivered. ‘Ay,’ said the good man, ‘you need not remind me of that, for the devil told me of it before I was out of the pulpit.’

Toplady’s Works, vol. iv., p. 11
