Excerpt from 1. The Work of Winning Souls, a Wise One, And, 2. The Spiritual Help Which a Church Gives to Its Minister: Two Sermons Preached in the Church of the Pilgrims, Brooklyn, N. Y., November 18, 1866, on the Completion of Twenty Years of Pastoral Service
The personal soul is the one thing which continuously and immortally lives; which outlasts the body; which lives when the stately house has fallen, and the splen did fortune has been scattered; which lives when the theory that once was accepted has been surpassed and forgotten, and the policy of the statesman has passed from men's sight; which outlasts even the world itself, and the stars in heaven, on which the earth is poised and hangs; which lives while God himself continues, and while his government continues to be exercised over intelligent moral beings. And he who devotes himself to accomplishing a work upon this personal human soul - that shall be for its essential welfare - undertakes a work that must be enduring and not brief a work that must abide in its fruits when all the precarious enterprises of man, whereby he is sur rounded, shall have come to their gradual or sudden termination.
