Every Sacrifice Will Have Been Worth It

The final revelation of the glory of Christ will be the consummation of our joy.  Every sacrifice will have been worth it.  Indeed those who have suffered most for Christ will say, in one very true sense, “We never made a sacrifice.  That slight momentary affliction was ‘preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison'” (see II Corinthians 4:17)
