Christian Quote of the Week (or so!):

The Christian Life: First Suffering, Then Glory

"Suffering and glory were conjoined in the case of the Master, and will also be conjoined in the case of the disciple; first the cross, then the crown; first the battle, then the victory; first the toil and heat of the day, then the rest. But the glory will be so transcendentally great that the sufferings will be completely forgotten; or rather, we will bless God for them, as being the prelude to the glory."

-– Paton Gloag, from "The Groaning Creation", in Exegetical Studies (1884)

Related Bible Verses:  "Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" (Romans 8:17-18)
