When Pompeii was destroyed, many that were found buried in the ruins were in very different situations. There were some found who were in the streets, as if they had been attempting to make their escape. There were some found in deep vaults, as if they had gone there for security. There were some found in lofty chambers: but where did they find the Roman sentinel? They found him standing at the city gate, with his hand still grasping the war weapon, where he had been placed by his captain. There, while the Heaven threatened him; there, while the lava steam rolled, he had stood at his post; and there, after a thousand years had passed away, was he found. So let Christians stand to their duty, in the post at which their Captain has placed them.
Take Away: So let Christians stand to their duty, in the post at which their Captain has placed them.
