Thomas à Kempis: adversity

May 11, 2009

    [Jesus:] "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me."
    -- Matthew 24:9 (NIV)

    If thou art willing to suffer no adversity, how wilt thou be the friend of Christ?
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ, II.i. [1418] (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have promised that we shall not be overcome.
