PAUL'S PREACHING IN ACTSBY JOHN EADIE
" His zesl must needs put him upon a mighty diligence and iridustn.- in the execution of his officewarning, repro-i-ing, entreating, persuading, "preaching in season and out of season." by night and by(lay, by sea and land ; no pains too much to be taken, no dangers too great to be overcome. For five andthirty years after his conversion, he seldom stayed long in one place ; from Jerusalem, through Arabia,Asia, Greece, round about to lUyricum, to Rome, and even to the utmost bounds of the Western world," fully preaching the gospel of Christ:" running (saitli St Jerome) from ocean to ocean, like the sun inthe heavens, of which it is said, " his going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit imt-o theends of it ;" sooner wanting ground to tread on, than a desire to propagate the faith of Christ. Nicephoruscompares him to a bird in the air, that in a few years flew round the world ; Isidore the Pelusiot, to nwinged husbandman, that flew from place to place to cultivate the world with the most excellent rulesand institutions of life. And while the other apostles did, as it wei-e, choose this or that particular pro-vince as the main sphere of their ministrj-, St Paid overran the whole %vorld to its utmost bounds and'■orners, planting all places where he came with the divine doctrines of the gospel. Nor in this cours>ewas he tired out with the dangers and difficulties that he met with, the troubles and oppositions that wereraised against him." — Cavb.
