How much then does it import me, to be found watching, with my loins girded up, and my lamp burning, diligently engaged in my poor calling. For the Lord has not called me to set nations to right, but to preach the Gospel, to proclaim the glory of his name, and to endeavour to win souls. Happy is that servant, whom his Lord, when he cometh, shall find you so doing!
--- from a letter written by John Newton, 1793. He was the author of the hymn, Amazing Grace,
