Thomas a Kempis: adversity

Friday, May 31, 2019
    [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 [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, II.i., p. 85 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 24:9; Ps. 103:10; Matt. 10:37-38; 16:24-25; Mark 8:34-35; Luke 9:23-24; 14:26-27,33; John 16:2; Rom. 8:18; 1 Thess. 3:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have promised that we shall not be overcome.
