Bunyan - Why do Christians suffer?

Commenting on John 15:2 (“Every branch that bears fruit, He prunes”), he says,  

“It is the will of God, that they that go to heaven should go thither hardly or with difficulty. The righteous shall scarcely be saved. That is, they shall, but yet with great difficulty, that it may be the sweeter.”
