Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The Power of Suffering in Light of the Cross

Suffering willingly endured is stronger than evil, it spells death to evil.

The passion of Christ is the victory of divine love over the powers of evil, and therefore it is the only supportable basis for Christian obedience.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship, (SCM Press: London, 2001), p. 92, 94, (originally published in 1937 by Chr. Kaiser Verlag of Munich).
