Wear Your Faith Wednesday: Take Up Your Cross

‘And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23

Raise your hand if you love when someone is angry at you! Raise your hand if you would definitely prefer dealing with difficult people than being at home watching Netflix!

Did you raise it?

Yeah, me neither.

No one prefers the road that is most difficult. We respect it, but we don’t really desire it. The road we walk with Christ will not be an easy one. He knows this, so he says ‘let him [man] deny himself’, implying that we must not focus on our wants, desires, pains, or emotions… we must in all ways deny ourselves in order to ‘take up his cross’. This will not be an easy task. We will face prosecutors, rumors, obstacles, anger, backlash but just like Christ it is our duty to bear that cross until we reach our destination, the Kingdom of God. This is a daily task. It is a constant, every decision you make influences it kind of task. Keep the faith, pray for strength, & take up your cross. For, it is instructed of us to do so.
