A death that can work must be a working death – the life of death, even the life of the Cross.
For the sake of the Lord Jesus. Ready always to be delivered to death.
Notwithstanding unpleasant words, high-handed attitudes, cruel persecution, or unjustified misunderstandings,
Quite willing to bear them all for the Lord’s sake.
And under no such circumstances adopt man’s way to avoid these unpleasantries.
