"We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering"

“My dear brother, we must not mind a little suffering for Christ’s sake. When I am getting through a hedge, if my head and shoulders are safely through, I can bear the pricking of my legs. Let us rejoice in the remembrance that our holy Head has surmounted all His suffering and triumphed over death. Let us follow Him patiently; we shall soon be partakers of His victory.”
— Charles Simeon, quoted by John Piper in The Roots of Endurance 

I recently finished The Roots of Endurance. I would highly recommend it. We can learn much from those who have gone before us and suffered greatly for the sake of the blessing of the Kingdom.
