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
