I. THE WORK. Circumstances have changed, and the methods are altered, but the work is the same. You are entitled to ask me, "What are we to do?"
1. Bear the insignia of your religion before the world. Let all men know that you are the followers of Christ.
2. Maintain His public worship.
3. Christianise the world.
II. THE MIND. This implies —
4. Thoroughness amid discouragement and opposition.
