Excerpt from Sleeping Through the Sermon: And Other Discourses
Another thought in passing, is that Paul was long in preaching. Twice in the brief record it is pointed out that he continued his speech far beyond what might have been expected. Once the words are, He continued his speech until mid night, and again, As Paul was long in preaching. So much is said concerning the length of sermons that we commend these phrases to those who be lieve, as a certain famous University is said to believe, that no one is converted after the first twenty minutes. It was no twenty-minute, essence oi-rose-water, poetic essay, you may be sure, which Paul, the battle-scarred veteran Of the Lord, was giving to the people in this upper chamber in Troas. It was, undoubtedly, strong meat, and not milk for babes.
