A and so to died upon his Knees. Thou there have been others Whoso names have been known Only in their own family or neighbourhood Ami Here and will wait in great anxiety until Tho fires of that fever arc extinguished Aud when the Man rises from his Pillow und walks out. With Liat heartiness we will Welcome him into the fresh air and Tho Church Anil business circles. To is 80 be ural of nge Aud if to shall Livo 00 years Inore thut will make him 00. But what Urc 00 yours More of earthly vigor compared with the souls health for u quadrillion millenniums a millennium us you know 1,000 years this world Sinco fitted up for Many a res Deuce has existed about 0,000 years. How much longer will it exist we will suppose it shall last As much longer which is very doubtful. Thut will Mako its existence 12,000 years. But what Are or will be 12,000 years compared with the eternity preceding these years Aud the eternity following them Timo As compared to eternity Liko Tho drop of the night Dew shaken from Tho top of a Grus Sutte tjljitfjg8w&h�8l�&�t5 with Mediterranean Aud arabian and Atlantic and Pacific watery dominions a stronger desired to up Richuso a farm hut the owner would not sell it would Only let it. Tho stronger hired it by Louse for Only one crop but to sowed acorns and to Maturo that crop 800 years were Nice usury. That was a practice deception hut i deceive you not when i Tell you that the crop of the soul takes hold of unending Ages. I see Tho author of my text seated in the House of Gaius who Eute ruined him at Corinth not far from Tho overhanging fortress of acro Corinthus and meditating on the longevity of Tho soul and getting More and Moro agitated about its value and Tiu awful risk Eluio of his Kindred were running concerning it Aud he writes this letter containing the text which Chrysostom admired so much he had it read to him twice a week and among other things he says those daring und startling words of my text Quot i could wish that myself Scro accursed from Christ for my Brethren my Kinsmen according to the Force of tears. Another Way to get something of the Paulino longing for ride mod immortal ties is by examining the vast machinery arranged to save this inner and spiritual future. That machinery started to revolve on the cd go of Tho Garden of Eden just after the of Clono of sin prostrated its sycamores Aud Tamarisk und Willows und will not coast to revolve until thu lust soul of Eurth shall get rid of its last sin and enter the heavenly Eden. On that stupendous machinery for soul in Vang Tho patriarch put his Huud and Prophet his hand and evangelist his hand and apostle his hand und Christ his hand and almost every Hund Tomt touched it become a crushed hand. It was the most expensive machinery Ever constructed. It Cost More to Start it and bus Cost and will Cost More to keep it running than All the a cols thut Ever Matlo revolution on this planet. Tomt machinery turned not by Ordinary motive Power but by Fri Cerf tears and blood. To connect its bands of influence made out of human and Christly nerves with All parts of Tho Earth millions of Good men Aud women arc now at work and will be it work until every wilderness shall by Como a Garden and every tear of grief shall be a tear of Joy and the sword of Divino Victory Almli give Tho wound to Tho old dragon that shall Send him howling to Tho pit the Iron gute clanging against him never Guin to open. All thut and infinitely More to 6avc the soul Why it must be a tremendous soul tremendous for Good or tremendous for evil tremendous for happiness or tremendous for to. Put on the left Side of to largest Sheet of paper that Ever came from paper Mill a single Nuit the figure 1, and How Many ciphers would you have to add to the right of that figure to express the soul s value each cipher adding tenfold working into that echeme of the soul s redemption How i Toul a outcry. In this last half of the last decade of to Niue Treuth Century thu temporal no in Tho churches is very Low Aud most of the piety would spoil if it Scro not kept on ice and taking things As they uru Ordinary Christi us will never reach Tho Point where Tho outcry of Paul in Tho text will not seem like extravaganza. The proprieties in most of the churches Aro so fixed that All a Chris is expected to do on Suu Duy is to get up a Little later in Tho morning than usual put on thut which is next to Bis Host at Tirol not the very Best for that 1ms to to reserved for the levee enter the Church with stately step Bow his Bead or it any Rule shut his eyes in prayer Timo or close them enough to look sleepy turn toward the pulpit with holy dullness Whilo the pro umber spruks put a 6 cent Picot or if Tho times he hard u 1 cent piece on the collection Plutter kind of shoving it Down under the other Coin so that it might be for Ull that Tho usher knows a $5 Gold piece Aud then after Tho Benediction go quietly Homo to the biggest repast of All the week. Thut is Ull the major Ltd of christians Aro doing for Tho rectification of this planet and they will do that until it Tho close of life Tho poster no Cut n Black Book it the head of their casket and reads Quot blessed Ore Tho dead who Dio in the lord they rest from their labors and their works do follow the sense of Tho ludicrous is so thoroughly developed in me that when i heat these scripture words read at to obsequies of our of Tho religious do nothings in the churches it is too Tufuoh for Niv Gravity. Quot their works do follow what works Aud in what direction do they follow them up or Down and do they follow on foot or on the Wing Aud How Long will they follow before they catch up More appropriate funeral text for All Fuch religious Send beats would to Tho words in Matthew a. It a a a a a a no would think that such christians the a show at least Nuder whose Banner they arc enlisted. In one of the Napoleon to wars a woman Jeannotte by name took her position with Tho troops and shouldered a Broomstick. To colonel said Quot Joni Mette Why do Yon take such a useless weapon into the ranks Quot Quot Well Quot so said a i can show it least which Sido i am now the object of this Sermon is to stir at least Ono fourth of you to an ambition for that which my text presents in blazing namely a passion for souls. To Provo that it is possible to Hugo much of that spirit i bring Tho consecration of 2,ftu0 foreign missionaries. It is usually estimated that Thero Aro at least 3,000 missionaries. I make a Liberal allowance and admit there May be 10 Bud missionaries out of Tho 3,000, but i do not believe there is one. All English and american merchants Louvou Bombay Calcutta Amoy and poking is soon of they make their fortunes. Why because no european or american in his senses would stay in that climate after monetary inducements have Cou cd. Now Tho missionaries Tubero Are put Down on the Barest necessities and most of Thorn do not Lay up $1 in 20 years. Why then do they stay in those binds of intolerable heat and cobras and raging fevers Tho thermometer sometimes play log at 130 and 140 degrees of oppressive Ness 13,000 Miles from Home because of the unhealthy Limato Aud Tho prevailing i moralities of those regions compelled to Send their children to England or Scotland or America probably Novar to Many Angels of god descending and there Yon think of one. What notion ascending How Many storms swooping they had in prayer what Power they on Mako Galilee How Many Earth had in exhortation i if they walked into quakes opening dungeons and striking a Home every member of it Felt a holy cataclysms through mountains from thrill and if they walked into a prayer Fop to base what Noonday san was put meeting the dullness and solidity in on Retreat what omnipotence lifted stantly vanished. Ono of them would Ai n what godhead was put to torture Wake up a whole Church. One of them All that for the soul would sometimes electrify n whole City. But the most wonderful one of that characterization Tho world Cor saw or heard or Folt was a peasant in the far cast wearing a Plain Blouse like an in no wonder that Paul though possessing great equipoise of temper mint when he thought what his friends Aud Kindred were risking concerning their souls Flung aside All Bis Ordinary modes a course of Ayers pills the system is set in Good working order and a Man begins to Feci that life is Worth living. who has become the gradual prey of constipation does not realize the friction under which he labors until the Burden is lifted from him. Then his mountains sink into molehills his Moros eness gives place to jollity he is a Happy Man again. If life does not seem Worth living to you you May take a very different View of it after taking Ayers cathartic pills. Bee lib in again 0 blessed Christ can it be anything but n passion for souls it is easy to understand All this frequent depreciation of foreign missionaries when Yon know that they Aro All opposed to the opium traffic and that interferes with Commerce Aud then to missionaries arc moral and that is an offence to Many of the merchants not Ull of them but Many of them who absent from Ull Homo restraint Are so immoral that we Cun Mako Only faint illusion to Tho monstrosity of their abominations. Of i would Liko to be at the Gate of heaven when those missionaries go in to see How they will have the pick of coronets and thrones and mansions on the Best streets of heaven. We who have Ltd easy pulpits and Loving congregations entering heaven will in my opinion have to Tonko our turn and wait for the Christian workers who amid physical sufferings and mental privation und environment of squalor have Doue to boil work Aud on the priv Ciplic that in proportion us one has been self sacrificing and suffer aug for Christ s Sako on Earth will to their celestial preferment. I for a Une Boleyn. Who is that Young woman on Tho worst Street in Washington new York or London Billo in Hund und a Little package in which Are Small vials of medicines Aud another bundle in which Are biscuits hew dare she risk herself among those a troughs Quot und where is Slio going Sho is one of the Queens of heaven Hunting up Tho sick and hungry und before night she will have read Christ a Quot lot not your heart to troubled in eight or ten places and counted out from those vials the right number of drops to Euso pain Aud Given food to a family that would other also Hava Hud nothing to eat today and taken Tho measure of a dead child that Sho May prepare for it u shroud her every act of kindness for the body accompanied with a Benediction for Tho soul. You Seo nothing but to filthy Street along which she walks Aud Tho rickety stairs up which Sho climbs but Sho is a com punted by an unseen cohort of Augolo with drawn swords to defend her and with garlands twisted for her victories Ull up and Down Tho tenement House districts. I Tell you there was not so much excitement when Anne Boleyn on her Way to her Coronation found the thames stirred by 50 gilded barges with Brilliant flags in a Boob Hung Small Bells rung by each motion of Tho wind noblemen standing in Scarlet and wharf spread with cloth of Gold Aud All the gateways surmounted by Huzzah no admirers and the streets Hung with Crimson velvet and trumpets Aud Cunt on sounding the Job Floe and Anno dressed in surtout of Silver tissue and brow gleaming with a of react of rubies and amid fountains that poured rhenish wine passed on to Westminster Hall and Rodo in on a Ca Paris once Palfrey its hoofs cluttering on the classic floor and dismounting passed into Westminster Abbey and Between Tho choir and High altar was crowned Queen Amido organs Aud choirs chanting the Quot the deum Quot a i say Thero was not much in All that glory which Dazzles to Eye of Bastury when it is cum Parea Wun Tuu heavenly reception which that ministering spirit of Tho Back Alley shall receive when she goes up to Coronation. When she goes in what Welcome on Tho River of life its Banks of Pear lined with splendours Seraphic and in temples of eternal worship whose Musio is commanded by swing of archangel in scepter and before thrones where sit those who have reigned a thousand years but have just begun their Dominion. Poor Anno Boleyn in two years after that pageant lost life and throne by one stroke of headman but those who on Earth Bavo a divine passion for souls shall never lose their thrones. Quot they shall reign forever Aud but after All Tho Best Wuy to cultivate thut divine passion for souls is to work for their salvation. Under god Savo one Aud you will want right Way to save two. Save two and you will want to save 10. Save 10, Aud you will want to save 20. Save 20, Ulm you will Wunt to save 100. Save 100, Aud you will want to save everybody. And what is the use of talking about it when Tho place to begin is Here Aud the Timo is now Aud while you Pruy i will in one Minuto Tell Ull Here is of it full Pardon for the worst Man on Earth if he will believe in Christ Whoso blood con instantly Wash away the foulest crimes. Full Comfort for the most harrowing distress that Ever crushed a human being. At your first moment of belief a process by which the whole Universo of god will torn Clear around for your eternal advantage. For to Mere asking if Tho asking be in Earnest and you throw everything into thut asking Complete Solace and helpfulness for to few years of this life and then a wide open heaven which Yon can reach in less time than it takes to to pronounce that Imperial word flashing with All Tho Joy that an Infinito cd knows How to bestow heaven. Tiu gospel divine. In this world god Over does his Best to con hang on the horizon grander mornings than have Ever yet been kindled and Rainbow Tho sky with Richer colors than have Ever been arched and attune the oceans to Moro Majestic Dox ologies than Hugo Ever yet been attuned but As near As i can Tell and i speak it reverently heaven is Tho place where god has Dono his Host. To Cun build no greater Joys lift no mightier splendours Roll no loftier anthems March no More imposing processions build no greater palaces and spread out and into join and wave no More transporting magnificence. I think heaven is Tho Best heaven god can Tous Truet and it is All yours for the serious asking. How do you like the offer in you really think it is Worth accepting if so Pruy for it.
