A hypocrite is able to do good, but he has no delight in every duty.  He does God’s will against his own. . .We must be carried upon the wings of delight in every duty.  The regenerate may not always have the same cheerful temper of obedience, but his weariness is his burden.  He is weary of his weariness, and he prays, weeps, and uses all means to regain his cheerfulness and freedom in God’s service. – Thomas Watson (ca. 1620-1686)
