He has the medicine!
He is too lazy to go andproclaim the remedy. He has the cure and is too idle to go out and administer it to the sick and the dying! No, myFriends, such an inhuman wretch could not exist!
But I can see him here today. There you are! You know the world issick with the plague of sin and you yourself have been cured by the remedy which has been provided. You are asleep, inac-tive, loitering. There is the all-precious blood ofChrist—you never go to tell the dying what they must do to be saved. The world is perishing with worse than plague—and you are idle! And you are a minister of the Gospel.
And you have taken that holy office upon yourself. And you arecontent to preach twice on a Sunday and once on a weekday and there is no remonstrance within you. You never desire toattract the multitudes to hear you preach. You had rather keep your empty benches and study propriety, than you wouldonce, at the risk of appearing over-zealous, draw the multitude and preach the Word to them.
You are a writer—you have great power in writing. You devote your talents alone to light literature, or to the pro-duction of other things which may furnish amusement but which cannot benefit the soul.
You know the Truth but you donot tell it out. Yonder mother is a converted woman—you have children and you forget to instruct them in the way toHeaven. You yonder are a young man, having nothing to do on the Sabbath-Day and there is the Sunday-School. You donot go to tell those children the sovereign remedy that God has provided for the care of sick souls.
The death-bell is ring-ing even now. Hell is crying out, howling with hunger for the souls of men. Bring out the sinner! Bring outthe sinner! Let him die and be damned! Oh, may the blessing of God rest on you, to turn you from such an evil way thatyou may not sleep as do others but may watch and be sober. Hark how the mast creaks!
See the sails there, rent to ribbons. Breakers ahead! She will be on the rocks directly. Where is the captain? Where is the boatswain? Where are the sailors? Ahoy there! Where are you? You are down in the cabin. And there is the captain in a soft sweet slumber. There is the man at thewheel, as sound asleep as ever he can be. And there are all the sailors in their hammocks.

And the breakers ahead? The lives of two hundred passengers in danger and here are these brutes asleep? Kick them out. What is the goodof letting such men as these be sailors, especially in such a time as this? Why, out with you! If you had gone to sleep in fine weather we might have forgiven you. Up with you, Captain! What have you been doing? Are you mad? But hark! The ship has struck—she will be down in a moment. Now you will6 www. Now you will work when it is of no use and when the shrieks of drowning women shall toll you into Hellfor your most accursed negligence in not having taken care of them.
Well that is very much like a great many of us, inthese times, too. This proud ship of our commonwealth is reeling in a storm of sin. The very mast of this great nation is creaking un-der the hurricane of vice that sweeps across the noble vessel. Every timber is strained and God help the good ship, or alas,none can save her. And who are her captain and her sailors, but ministers of God, the professors of religion?
These arethey to whom God gives grace to steer the ship.

Are you asleep in the storm? Are you slumbering now?
If there were no dens of vice, if there were no harlots,if there were no houses of profanity, if there were no murders and no crimes, oh, you that are the salt of the earth—youmight sleep. But today the sin of London cries in the ears of God. This behemoth city is covered with crime and God is vexed withher. And are we asleep, doing nothing? Then God forgive us! But surely, of all the sins He ever does forgive, this is thegreatest, the sin of slumbering when a world is damning—the sin of being idle when Satan is busy, devouring the souls ofmen.
For if we do, a curse must fall upon us, horrible to bear. There is a poor prisoner in a cell. His hair is all matted over his eyes. A few weeks ago the judge put on the black capand commanded that he should be taken to the place from where he came and hung by the neck until dead.
The poorwretch has his heart broken within him, while he thinks of the pinion, of the gallows and of the drop and of after-death. Oh, who can tell how his heart is rent and racked while he thinks of leaving all and going he knows not where?
