It is evident that all the sermons that have been preached have not developed a large class of self-denying workers. This subject is to be considered as involving the most serious results. Our future for eternity is at stake. The churches are withering up because they have failed to use their talents in diffusing light. Careful instruction should be given which will be as lessons from the Master, that all may put their light to practical use. Those who have the oversight of the churches should select members of ability and place them under responsibilities, at the same time giving them instruction as to how they may best serve and bless others.
Every means should be used to bring the knowledge of the truth before the thousands who will discern the evidence, who will appreciate the likeness of Christ in His people if they can have an opportunity to see it. Let the missionary meeting be turned to account in teaching the people how to do missionary labour. God expects His church to discipline and fit its members for the work of enlightening the world. An education should be given
that would result in furnishing hundreds who would put
out to the exchangers valuable talents. By the use of these
talents, men would be developed who would be prepared
to fill positions of trust and influence, and to
maintain pure, uncorrupted principles. Thus great good
would be accomplished for the Master.
