Charles Spurgeon- Saved To Serve

(from “Weak Hands and Feeble Knees“)

“Active service is expected of every Christian.  Christ does not put His children on a bed, and then carry them to heaven along a lazy road; but He gives them life, and bids that life develop itself; He gives them strength, and commands them to use that strength in working out their own salvation.  While He works in them, they are passive; but He then bids them be active and work out what He has beforehand wrought in.  He is no Christian who does not seek to serve His God.  The very motto of the Christian should be, “I serve.”  Christ’s people are Christ’s servants, and as the angels in heaven delight to fly at God’s behests, so do the children of God delight to run in the way of His commands.”
