Because of Calvary,
James 1:2-4 (ESV)2 Count it all joy, my brothers,[a] when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
“I pity the man who never has any troubles…. Poverty, sickness, bereavement, and sorrow of heart are often God’s angels that come to smite men on the side, and wake them up, as the angel awoke sleeping Peter, and delivered him from, prison, whence he was to have been led forth to die on the morrow. Some of you ought to thank God that he does not let you have a very easy or merry time.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit LI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1905), p. 606]
