The Reproach of Christ

“It is in vain to attempt to lead a Christian life in any age or country, and yet escape the reproach of Christ, v. 26.  All who will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution, 2 Tim. 3:12. The offence of the cross has not ceased in our day.  There is no getting on without Christ, and there is no getting on without the reproach of Christ.  The reproaches of Christ are great riches, greater than all the treasures of Egypt.  How great then must be the riches in glory!”  –William S. Plumer “Hebrews” p. 476

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
