Christ Offers No Hothouse Christianity

True holiness does not make a Christian evade difficulties, but face and overcome them. Christ would have His people show that His grace is not a mere hot-house plant, which can only thrive under shelter, but a strong hardy thing which can flourish in every relation of life.

J. C. Ryle, Holiness (Carlisle, PA: Evangelical Press, 2011), 25.
