Brent: call to suffering

Tuesday, August 21, 2018
    And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
    —1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)
    If every call to Christ and His righteousness is a call to suffering, the converse is equally true—every call to suffering is a call to Christ, a promotion, an invitation to come up higher.
    ... Charles H. Brent (1862-1929), The Consolations of the Cross, London: Longmans, Green, 1904, p. 55 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 5:10; Ps. 30:5; Acts 20:23; Rom. 8:18; 2 Cor. 4:17; 1 Pet. 1:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I receive your call to suffering and righteousness.
