With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:…
1. Because of our own indisposition, timorousness, dulness, and backwardness to all holy and good duties. What Christian findeth not this by woeful experience in himself? When he would pray, etc., there is I know not what fearfulness in him; his flesh hangeth back, as a bear when he is drawn to the stake.
2. Because of those many oppositions which we are sure to meet.
(1) The world.
(2) The devil.
