Labouring for Christ

From Samuel Rutherford's The Loveliness of Christ:

I urge upon you...a nearer communion with Christ and a growing communion. There are curtains to be drawn in by Christ that we never saw, and new foldings of love in him. I despair that ever I shall win to the far end of that love, there are so many plies in it; therefore dig deep, and sweat, and labour, and take pains for him, and set by so much time in the day for him as you can; he will be won with labour.
