Now I begin to be a disciple… Let fire and cross, flocks of beasts, broken bones, dismemberment… come upon me, so long as I attain to Jesus Christ.
– Ignatius of Antioch
(Taken from The Story of Christianity: Vol. 1 by Justo L. Gonzalez)
…so long as I attain to Jesus Christ. What am I willing to endure to attain to Jesus Christ? Anything? Is there anything I’m NOT willing to endure? How about you?
