Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
Matthew 10:38-39 NIV +
Written by Jung
I’ve always thought that carrying a cross for your own crucifixion was a very cruel punishment. What if a prisoner had to go to a market and buy the bullet before their execution? Can you imagine?
The cross carries significance for all of us. It represents love, truth, hardship, and atonement through His blood – all the reasons why we are Christians.
So, what does it mean to carry your own cross? It means that merely desiring what Christianity is isn’t enough; you have to be one. You must walk the walk and talk the talk. You have to live your life according to what Christ means to you.
Today, live your life as a reflection of the Christ you know. Jesus is there to guide you.
