Insensibility to Salvation of Others – Payson

“We all deserve damnation, a thousand times, for our stupid insensibility to the situation of those, who are perishing around us.  We profess to believe the word of God; but can you prove that you believe it?  Do you act, as if you believed it?  Do you believe that many of your acquaintances, your children, are in danger of the fate, which has been so vividly described in the bible?

Dare you go to God, and say, Lord, I believe thy word, I believe that all your warnings and threats will be fulfilled… and then, as if I believed nothing… turn away, and coolly pursue my worldly business, without uttering one agonizing cry for those, who are exposed to this danger?  Dare you go and claim relationship to Christ, and profess to have his Spirit, and then make no effort, or only a few faint efforts, to save those, for whom he shed not tears only, but blood?”
