“Glorify the Lord in your sufferings, and take his banner of love and spread it over you.  Others will follow you, if they see you strong in the Lord.  Their courage shall take life from your Christian carriage.  Look up and see who is coming!  Lift up your head, he is coming to save, in garments dyed in blood, and traveling in the greatness of his strength.  I laugh, I smile, I leap for joy to see Christ coming to save you so quickly.  Oh, such wide steps Christ taketh!  Three or four hills are but a step to him.”

Samuel Rutherford, Letters (New York, 1863), page 267.
