Affliction

J.C. Philpotby J.C. Philpot

The Lord has chosen that His people should pass through deep and cutting afflictions, for it is “through many afflictions” they are to enter the Kingdom of God above, and into the sweetness and power of the Kingdom of God below. But every man will resent this doctrine, except if God has led him experimentally into it. It is such a rough and rugged path—it is so contrary to flesh and blood—it is so inexplicable to nature and reason—that man, proud, rebellious man, will never believe that he must enter into the Kingdom of God through many afflictions.
