The field is the world.
I. THE GRANDEUR OF THE OBJECT. Survey the field geographically. Estimate the miseries of the world. Consider these human beings as immortal, and candidates for an eternity of happiness or misery.

II. THE MISSIONARY UNDERTAKING IS ARDUOUS ENOUGH TO CALL INTO ACTION THE NOBLEST ENERGIES OF MAN. This enterprise requires consummate wisdom, unwavering perseverance, undaunted courage, sublime faith.

III. THE MEANS BY WHICH THIS MORAL REVOLUTION IS TO BE EFFECTED. By the preaching of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Contemplate the simplicity, benevolence, and efficacy of this means.

(F. Wayland, D. D.)




IV. ITS GLORIOUS DESTINATION. A destiny of universal knowledge, righteousness, peace, felicity.


(J. Burns, D. D.)

I. The field is the world, because the commission of Christ does not restrict the publication of the gospel to any one class or nation.

II. The world is the field in which the Church is to sow the seed of the Word, because the world has been given to Christ her Head.

III. Because, however wide it may be, ample means exist for its cultivation.

IV. That the field to be cultivated by the Church is the world, is shown by the example of the inspired apostles.

V. Follows from the fact that the gospel is suited alike to all the nations of the world.

VI. The very nature of moral principle in the heart, of man requires that the Church regard the world as the field.

VII. The composition of the congregation assembled in heaven proves that the field is the world.

1. Send the gospel to all.

2. Value souls.

3. Cultivate a lively sympathy with the glory of Christ.

4. Lay the foundation of all usefulness in personal godliness.

(J. Stewart.)
