The "Hardship" of Our Cross

If a person with a deadly disease were told that he could go to a hospital, and there come under the treatment of the greatest physician in the world, who had never lost a patient suffering from that disease; that all the expenses would be paid, and the treatment would be without personal suffering or risk; and he could count on being discharged with a complete and permanent cure, would such a patient say that this offer, and this experience, if he went through it, was a great hardship? Or would he look back on that hospital experience with unspeakable gratitude as the most blessed thing in his life? That is a faint and inadequate suggestion of what the cross is to the Christian.—Sunday School Times.
