Because of Calvary,
II Timothy 3:12 (ESV)

“Our preparation for sufferings is an excellent argument of the honesty and sincerity of our hearts, in the matters of religion: he that makes account of sufferings, and is daily at work with his own heart, mortifying his corruptions, weaning its worldly affections, exciting and making ready its suffering-graces, resolving, in the strength of God, to take his lot with Christ, wherever, and however it shall fall; this is the man that hath deliberately closed with Christ upon his own terms, and is like to be the durable and victorious Christian.” [The Works of John Flavel VI, (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1820), p. 18]
