Lazy Soldiers for Christ

The Works of George Swinnock: Volume 1 (p. 67)

"Lepidus Major, a loose Roman, when his comrades were exercising themselves in the camp, would lay himself down to sleep in the shade, and cry out… Would this were all the duty I were to do. Such soldiers are many who pretend to fight under Christ’s banner; when they should be watching their souls, and warring with Satan and sin, they are sleeping and snoring, as if that were the way to work out their salvations. Reader, I must acquaint thee with the physician’s rule, that… Weariness without some apparent cause is a sign of a diseased body; so thy laziness doth speak a very unsound soul."

The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field.
