Jesus deserves the hearty, uncomplaining, cheerful service, of all who believe on his name. If our hearts are right with him, we shall not consider his commandments grievous; for love always makes obedience sweet. If our views of Christ are correct and scriptural — we shall esteem it our highest honor to serve him, however menial the employment. Better to be a door-keeper, and stand at the threshold, and watch night after night, for Jesus — than to dwell in a mansion with sinners, or in a palace with those who have no love to his name.

– James Smith –
