[His word] was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not [stay].
Necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! . . . What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.–They called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, . . . We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.–The love of Christ constraineth us.
I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth. . . . [Thou] wicked and slothful servant, . . . thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and [then] at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
Go . . . to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee.
