“Dr Manford George Gutzke, a much-appreciated seminary professor, said to our class one day, ‘Expect to suffer. Those God uses, he usually calls to suffering. Suffering is one of the main ways the Lord lovingly provides for your sanctification. Either through direct persecution for preaching the truth of the gospel or as the result of living in this fallen world, most of you will suffer—some of you will suffer terribly.’” (Sykes, Lowell. “Advice to Young Pastors (2),” The Banner of Truth Magazine 699 December 2021, 16)
