Letter from William Carey to his father (Jan 12, 1788)

Dear Father,

To negotiate between God & men is a weighty important work. Indeed, let me have a share in your private address to the Great Eternal and never let you or I cease to act for God in our spheres with indefatigable industry, till we can’t find a soul that’s destitute of Christ in all the world. The thot of a fellow creature perishing forever should rouse all our activity and engage all our powers. The God we serve deserves all our hearts and souls. Tis ever sordid and bane to care for none but ourselves. Tis our Divine Jehovah that is dishonoured by sin. The enemy of God prevails and reigns with imperious rage, and souls are perishing. The matter is desperate. It calls for us to live and act alone for God.
