Do not be slothful


" Do not be slothful —but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises." Hebrews 6:12

Here is a spur to diligence, from the example of those who have ran the race and gained the prize—who have fought the good fight and have come off more than conquerors.

My soul, yield to no temptation to indulge in slumberous ease. Be stirred up earnestly to follow those who have gone before, and were distinguished for their faith and perseverance. They were beset with spiritual enemies just as you are—but they overcame them in the strength of the Lord. They had many trials to endure—but looking unto Jesus, they were enabled to endure until the end. The path that some of them had to tread was a very thorny one—but depending on the faithful Promiser, they were furnished with shoes of iron and brass! Their conflicts are now ended, and all their trials are over:

"All their sorrows are left behind,
  And earth is exchanged for Heaven!"

Press on in their footsteps
—copy their faith and endurance—be followers of them in their devoted service to Christ; and soon you will join them in the Celestial City, and share their triumph and reward!
