Excerpt from A Sermon, Delivered at the Ordination of the Rev. Josiah B. Andrews
The apofl-le Paul was diftinguiihed from the other apoftles of our Lord Hus Chrift, by the ardor of his zeal, by the abundance of his labors in the fervice of his great mailer, and by the cruel perfeelations he met with from the enemies of the Chriltian caufe. Impreﬂ'ed with a lively fenfe of gratitude to God', for interpofing, in a miraculous manner, to bring him to a knowledge of Jefus Chrifl: and of the way of falvation through him, he devot ed his life to the propagation of that glorious fyltemv To an object fo momentous he facrificed all that the world calls dear, his cafe, his interefl, his reputa tion, and in the end life itfelf. This. Illuflrious child of wifdom triumphed in the midft of perlocution he gloried that he was accounted worthy to fuﬂer for the caufe of Chriﬂz; and defired to fpend and he fpent in diﬂ'eminating that religion. Which is in fact, and which he firmly believed to be the power of God to falvation to every one that believeth.
