But none of these Things move me, neither count I my Life dear unto my self, so that I might finish my Course with Joy, and the Ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testifie the Gospel of the Grace of God. And now behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the Kingdom of God, hall see my Face no more. Wherefore I take you to Record this Day, that I am pure from the Blood of all Men. For I have not founned to declare unto you all the Counsel of God. Take Heed therefore unto your selves, and to all the Flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath mude
Overseers, to feed the Church of God, which he hath purchased with his own Blood : For I know this, that after my Departing shall grievous Wolves enter in among you, not sparing the Flock. Also of your own selves shall Men arise, speaking perverse Things, to • draw away Disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember that by the Space of three Years, I ceased not to warn every one Night and Day with Tears. And now, Brethren, I commend you to God, and to the Word of his Grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an Inheritance
all them which are fančtified. I have coveted no Man's Silver, or Gold, or Apparel. Yea, you your selves know, that these Hands have ministred unto my Necessities, and to them that were with me. I have Mewed you all Things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the Weak; and to remember the Words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
This awful Charge, deliver'd as the last and dying Words of the Apostle to the Elders at Ephesus, but equally belonging to, and affecting the Ministers of the Gospel in every Age of the Church, ought to be weighed and greatly ponder’d by all such as desire the Profperity of the
Church of Christ, and the Exaltation of his Kingdom and Government in the World, which is the Prevalence of the Holy Ghost in the Hearts of Men. Under a Sense of the great Want and Necessity of this, we believe, the pious Author of the whole Duty of Man, writ the following weighty Expressions in his Prayer for the Peace of the Church.
· O Lord Jesus, let thy Spirit stretch out it self upon these Waters of evil wavering Opinions. • And because Thy Spirit, which, according to Thy Prophet's Saying, containeth all Things,
hath also the Science of Speaking ; make that « like as uñto all them which be of Thy House
, i is One Light, One Baptism, One God, One Hope
, « One Spirit, so they may also have One Voice, • One Note, One Song, profeffing One Catholick « Truth. When Thou didftmount up to Hea
ven Triumphantly, thou threwest out from above Thy precious Things ; Thou gavest Gifts • amongstMen, Thou dealteft fundry Rewards of
Thy Spirit. Renew again from Above Thy old « Bountifulness ; Give that Thing to Thy Church, « now Fainting and growing Downward, that • Thou gaveft unto Her shooting up, at Her first
Beginning. Give to the Bishops the Gift of « Prophecy, that they may declare and interpret
Holy Scripture, not of their own Brain, but of * Thine Inspiring The Testimony of JESUS is the Spirit of
