Escape & Endurance

"Sometimes God works miracles of rescue through suffering (Hebrews 11.27-35) and sometimes He gives the faith to endure misery and death (Hebrews 11.35-39). The common denominator in the faith that escapes and the faith that endures, is that in both God is treasured above liberty and life. The one who escapes says, "Jesus is better than what i gain." The one who dies says "Jesus is better than what i lose." That is the essence of faith: Jesus trusted and valued above all." - John Piper
