We — people who want to spend eternity with Christ — would rather be spared all anguish than encounter Him while we feel it. We’d rather never be in misery than see Him do what he does whenever we’re in it: show up. Which means we’d prefer not to know resurrection over taking the only route that leads us to it: a cross — that we prefer what we want over what He wants. But what He wants will illuminate what makes whatever we’ve wallowed in worth it, every time. God’s glory.
