Revelation 3:16

“I would ask these tepid, neutral professing Christians this question – If religion is not a good cause, why did they undertake it at first ? If it is, why do they go about it so faintly ? Why have they no more holy ardour of soul ?

“These persons would gladly go to heaven on a soft bed, but are loath to be carried there in a fiery chariot of zeal. Remember, God will be zealous against those who are not zealous; he provides the fire of hell for those who lack the fire of zeal.”

– Thomas Watson, from The Godly Man’s Picture, p. 117
