… and why haven’t I read more Bonhoeffer?
It is infinitely easier to suffer in obedience to a human command than to accept suffering as free, responsible men. It is infinitely easier to suffer with others than to suffer alone. It is infinitely easier to suffer as a public hero than to suffer apart and in ignominy. It is infinitely easier to suffer physical death than to endure spiritual suffering. Christ suffered as a free man alone, apart and in ignominy, in body and in spirit and since that day many Christians have suffered with him. D.B. Letters and Papers From Prison.
Exit question… There are many who freely suffer for Christ, alone and in ignominy. Can we name one? Just one?
They truly suffer with Him, while I complain about my wine being the wrong temperature. God forgive me.
