Negligence in one's holy calling

He who has been counted worthy of the heavenly calling, and by this calling has been sanctified, if he grows negligent in it, although washed becomes defiled: counting the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a profane thing and despising the Spirit of grace, (Heb 10:29), he hears the words, Friend, how came you to be here without a wedding garment?  For the banquet of the saints is spotless and pure; for many are called, but few chosen, (Mat 22:12).
