carry your cross by JmPhotography09 carry your cross by JmPhotography09
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." —Luke 9:23

Jesus spoke in the Bible about taking up our cross DAILY and following Him. A "cross" is what a person is crucified upon. Why did Jesus have to carry a cross? It was because the Jews crucified Jesus! Do you know why they wanted to crucify Jesus? For the same reason they want to crucify me... for speaking the truth! Most people don't like to hear the truth; sadly, even most Christians don't want to hear the truth.

"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." —John 15:18

The world hated Jesus, ultimately murdering Him. Are we greater than our Lord? No, we are not. The Bible is clear concerning this matter... Christlike believers will suffer persecution!

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." —2nd Timothy 3:12

I am saddened that so many professed Christians are ignorant of this. Our Lord clearly warned that we WOULD (not might, but would) be PERSECUTED in this world. If you are NOT suffering from some type of persecution as a Christian, then you are not doing a very good job fighting the good fight of faith.


The Good Fight of Faith

When my enemies maliciously attack me, I rejoice, because it means that I'm doing something right for God. The more they attack, the stronger my ministry becomes through God's grace. As the old saying goes, “That which doesn't defeat you only makes you stronger.” My pastor used to put it another way, “Unshakable faith comes from having your faith shaken.” So I say to all the hordes of Hell... bring it on! I am on the Lord's side.

I think you have right.Moreover, Jesus showed us that the most important thing is dedication. Because long ago I discovered ... Sacrifice is the highest form of love! Jah Bless!
