Simeon & Suffering

Category: Theology - Pastoral :: Permalink

Here’s a quotation my father passed on to me recently. It’s from Charles Simeon, who struggled against great opposition in his ministry:

My dear brother, we must not mind a little suffering for Christ’s sake. When I am getting through a hedge, if my head and shoulders are safely through, I can bear the pricking of my legs. Let us rejoice in the remembrance that our holy Head has surmounted all His suffering and triumphed over death. Let us follow Him patiently; we shall soon be partakers of His victory.
