"All Christ's peculiar people not only do good works, but are zealous of good works, Tit ii. 14. No man can do the service of two masters at once. They that are God's true servants do give up themselves to His service, and make it as it were their whole work, therein employing their whole hearts and the chief of their strength: Phil. iii. 13, "This one thing I do." Christians, in their effectual calling, are not called to idleness, but to labour in God's vineyard, and spend their day in doing a great and laborious service."
