To Whom Shall We Go?

A selection from a letter written by missionary Henry Martyn, July 11, 1808, to Rev. D. Corrie, about his sermon preached the day before to fourteen people in attendance at the church:

I spoke to them on the text, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.’ To whom shall we go? To the Padre – to the Virgin Mary – to the Saints – to the world – to works – to repentance? No; to Christ.

The Life and Letters of Henry Martyn, by John Sargent, first published in 1819, published by the Banner of Truth, 1985, p. 248.
