The Good Fight

“Moses never said to the children of Israel while they were in Egypt, ‘Go, fight with Pharaoh.’ Not at all; it is God’s work to bring us out of Egypt and make us his people, but when we are delivered from bondage, although it is God’s work to help us, we must be active in our cause.” – Charles Spurgeon, “War with Amalek” in The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit [1866]
