Are you not under a moral obligation to carry the gospel to others, that they also may hear it and be saved?  Remember how many lived and died to bring you the gospel.  Had it not been for men who burned at the stake, there might have been no gospel preaching in England.  Had it not been for those near and dear to you who loved you, and prayed for you, and wrestled for your salvation, you might have been in the midst of gospel light, and yet never have seen a ray of it.  Are you not a debtor, henceforth, to all around you?  Ought you not to repay your debt by laboring for others, as others labored for you? – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a sermon preached in 1881.
