Whitefield: restless heart

Wednesday, July 26, 2023
    Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
    —Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
    A true faith in Jesus Christ will not suffer us to be idle. No, it is an active, lively, restless principle; it fills the heart, so that it cannot be easy till it is doing something for Jesus Christ.
    ... George Whitefield (1714-1770), from a letter, 1739, The Works of the Reverend George Whitefield, M.A., v. I, London: Edward and Charles Dilly, 1771, p. 47 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 6:9; Eccl. 4:5; Isa. 6:8; Matt. 9:37-38; Rom. 12:11; 1 Thess. 4:10; 2 Thess. 3:10-13; Heb. 6:10-12; 2 Pet. 1:5-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Send me, Lord.
