Will You Creep?

“Shall a man run fast in a way of sin to destroy his soul, and will you but creep in the ways of God to save your soul? Shall wicked men run fast to hell, and will you but creep slowly to heaven? Shall a man make speed to the place of execution, and will you but move slowly towards a crown and throne? Shall wicked men not be ashamed to show their rage in a sinful course, and shall godly men be ashamed to be zealous in the ways of God?… They weary themselves to commit iniquity, and will you not do as much for God as they do for Satan?” – Christopher Love [1618–1651]
