Love to Christ smooths the path of duty

Love to Christ smooths the path of duty, and wings the feet to travel it: it makes the life of sincere devotion.

Love has a clear eye; but it can see only one thing,—it is blind to every interest but that of its Lord; it seeth things in the light of his glory, and weigheth actions in the scales of his honor; it counts royalty but drudgery if it cannot reign for Christ, but it delights in servitudeas much as in honor, if it can thereby advance the Master’s kingdom; its end sweetens all its means; its object lightens its toil, and removes its weariness.
