I like his short, to the point remarks that reduce Christianity down to the essentials. This is a good example of that ---
"For serving God concerns the frame of our Spirits, in the whole course of our lives; in every occasion we have, in which we may shew our love to his law.
For as men in battle are continually in the way of shot, so we, in this world, are ever within the reach of temptation. And herein do we serve God, if we avoid what we are forbid, as well as do what he commands.
God is better served in resisting a temptation to evil, than in many formal prayers.
This is but twice or thrice a day; but that every hour and moment of the day. So much more is our continual watch, than our morning and evening devotion.
Wouldst thou then serve God? Do not that alone which thou wouldst not that another should see thee do."
