My take: God suffered so that you might have a life, so why then would one just add suffering to life? There is nothing more you need to do. All has been done on the cross for you. You only need to receive from God because He gives more than He wants to take from you. If you listen to His instruction, there is very little you would have to depart from. God took on every pain you carry, so why not love Him? Why not honor His presence in your life? You are greater because of the man Christ was (on the cross) is (in face of challenges) will ever be (in eternity). Believe it (His love) and you can achieve it. Be love because God gave you permission to.
Much Love, Pew Partners
