It Wouldn’t Be Easy

This Thursday’s 4/3/14 writing prompt:
Carrying Your Cross

********************************************

What does it mean to carry your cross?

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23  NIV

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  Matthew 16:24  NIV

Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves.

Jesus knew that wouldn’t be easy.

He knew that choosing to follow Him would cost.

That taking up one’s cross would be difficult. Somedays more difficult than others.

Called to be different than the world around us.

Called to be His.
