English term or phrase:barrenness
Nothing is more useful to those who profess to be Christians than to see a real live Christian, a thoroughly zealous man of God. They may rail at him-they may carp at him,-they may pick holes in his conduct,-they may look shy upon him,-they may not understand him any more than men understand a new comet when a new comet appears; but insensibly a zealous man does them good. He opens their eyes. He makes them feel their own sleepiness. He makes their own great darkness visible. He obliges them to see their own barrenness.
