Christian Suffering

The following is a quote from “Spiritual Maturity” by J. Oswald Sanders,

“Paul’s conception was that anything which made him more like Christ was good, altogether irrespective of its reaction on his comfort or health or success or pleasure.  Christlikeness does not always thrive in the midst of material comforts.  Many of the most Christlike Christians have been plagued with ill-health.  Success in business has in many lives been the death knell of holiness.  Seeking after pleasure often defeats its own ends.”
