Are you a cross-bearer? Most people would probably answer “yes” and would even say they have two or more crosses to bear. But, a cross is not simply a hardship, a trial, or a difficult season in life. It’s not something you need to get through, like a financial crisis, or endure, like mistreatment.
Jesus bore a cross. He carried the very instrument that would be used for His execution. When He took up His cross, He was giving up His life.
“Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.'” (Matthew 16:24-25)
Have you taken up your cross? Fix your eyes on Jesus, carry your cross, and follow Him to that hill. You will lose your life, but don’t despair. In losing your life, you will gain your soul.
“I have been crucified with Christ.
It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.
And the life I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me.”
