His Supreme Value

He did not die to make this life easy for us or prosperous. He died to remove every obstacle to our everlasting joy in making much of him. And he calls us to follow him in his sufferings because this life of joyful suffering for Jesus' sake shows that he is more valuable than all the earthly rewards that the world lives for.
-John Piper (What Jesus Demands from the World)
