There’s no such thing as a Christian without a cross and struggle. There’s no such thing as a Christian who follows the easy path. Some people thought- and think- that to be a Christian is to observe certain commandments and to have an easy life, with comforts, with worldly prosperity and a safe life, in human terms. That’s not being a Christian. Christians are people who struggle every day. They struggle in order to love God. They struggle to love their brothers and sisters.
