Scripture speaks much of the rewards for being a faithful servant of God. In this scarce work, the Puritan William Gurnall, author of The Christian in Complete Armour, one of the best-loved of all the writings of the Puritans, speaks of the great rewards God will give His people in heaven, and the relative few things He asks of us in return. This work has been out of print since the 17th century. Appended to this title is the sermon, "The Civil Magistrate's Portrait Drawn from the Word". The two works contained in this present volume, along with his massive treatise on The Christian in Complete Armour, comprise all the known works of Gurnall's that were ever published.
The Christian's Labor and Reward is here reprinted with The Civil Magistrate's Portrait Drawn from the Word. The two works are the only two other ones ever published by this beloved author, best known for his Chistian in Complete Armour, pubished by the Banner of Truth. In the first work he shows that God asks so very little of us and rewards us so greatly in comparison. The second work is a biblical picture of a godly civil servant, and what we should expect from our leaders. Both of these works are immensely practical and relevant
