Some are dead; you must rouse them

Some are dead; you must rouse them. Some are troubled; you must comfort them. Others are burdened; you must point them to the burden-bearer. Still more are puzzled; you must enlighten them. Still others are careless and indifferent; you must warn and woo them.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon on the purposes of preaching
