The Worth of Souls

From the pen of Isaac Backus to his mother regarding the awakening of several sinners who were seeking Christ, written on September 27, 1762:

I daily look upon myself as a vile creature, yet the worth of souls and the great concerns of the kingdom of Christ, have, I think, engaged my mind as fully as ever in my life, to labor in his vineyard. Oh, these are golden moments, and woe to those who trifle them away.
