Excerpt from Right Conceptions of the Kingdom of God and Their Motive Value: A Sermon Before the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, at the Seventy-Eighth Annual Meeting, Held at Springfield, Mass., October 4, 1887
A distinguished living author has said: The sublime idea Of the conversion Of the world to Christ has become so common as to cease to awaken wonder. This is a great victory, and one which indicates a remarkable advance Of the truth. But is there not ground for fear lest the familiarity Of the notion which has conquered the sense Of wonder has also taken somewhat both from the commanding dignity Of the conception and from the intensity Of the purpose which contemplates the bring ing Of all men into subjection to the Son Of God, SO that what has been gained in one direction has been partially lost in another?
