O had not his [Christ’s] feet been well shod with love to our souls, he would soon have turned back, and said the way was unpassable; but on he goes and blunks not; never did we sin more willingly, than he went to suffer for our sin.

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


One interpretation of the “preparation” in the “preparation of the gospel of peace” (Eph. 6:15) is readiness for suffering. Christ deserves this readiness from us because of his willingness to endure pain and sorrow for us.
