A Voice form the Past - Bunyan

(Christian responding to a potential traveling companion)  If you will go with us, you must go against Wind and Tide, the which, I perceive, is against your opinion: You must also own Religion in his Rags, as well as when in his Silver Slippers, and stand by him too, when bound in Irons, as well as when he walketh the Streets with applause.

John Bunyan, 1628-1688, The Pilgrim's Progress (Books for Christians, 1972, p. 112)

How can we prepare ourselves to stand for God against wind and tide? Why is this important?
