“Many of us would either have a cross of our own carving, as we love will-worship, and will-duties, so we love will-suffering, and desire nothing more than if that we must suffer, Christ with His tongue would lick all the gall off our cross, and leave nothing but honey, and a cross of sugar and milk; we love to suffer with a reserve, and to die upon a condition. An indefinite and catholic resignation of ourselves without exception to Christ, and to undergo many furnaces, many hells, many deaths as Christ will, is a rare grace of God, and not of ordinary capacity.” Samuel Rutherford, Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himself (1647), 148–149.
