Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Never think that God is going to make a Christian out of you with. out effort of your own. When the lion crouches down before you, and his eyes glare upon you, and he is about to spring, you need not expect Providence to fire your gun for you; you must do it yourself or die. 'Tis kill or be killed with you then. God has already done His part in the work of your salvation. If you don't choose to do your part, you will perish.
(H. W. Beecher.)
