God is not unrighteous
to forget your work and labour of love
which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to
the saints, and do minister—Heb.
No child of the
Lord should be content to let the days of the present
harvest time go by with their golden opportunities for
service and co-operation without seeking each day to
lift the royal banner himself, and publicly to show
forth the praises of Him who has called him out of darkness
into light, or without assisting and co-operating with others
whom the Lord in His providence has placed in more
advantageous positions for public
