Let us bear in mind that every child of God is under high and holy discipline, and that true grace is certain to be tried and sifted. If Jesus learned obedience by the things he suffered, though he were a Son, good cause there is that we too should be sifted. Remember that the Lord tried Israel for forty years, to prove what was in their hearts; and if he cross our will, it is to try our faith and patience — if heresy come into deceive if it were possible the very elect, it is to make manifest them that are approved. Let us labour that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him, and count it all joy to meet the trials which strengthen faith.

For the reference, see George Smeaton on the trial of true grace.
