Video For Today: Carry Your Cross

God has a “cross”…
for each of us to bear.
And it’s our cross to carry…
and not even to share.
For each path is different…
and our crosses not the same…
but it’s through our own “cross”…
that overcoming will be proclaimed.

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” Matthew 16:24

“And whoever does not bear his cross and
come after Me cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:27

And as I prayed this morning, these words came to me:

Do you wear your cross or do you carry your cross? For there are many who wear their cross like a symbol but have not yet taken up the cross that God has called them to bear. Our “crosses” are not easy. There is pain and suffering along the path that we carry it. But out of each trial, there is a testimony that will arise as we follow Christ and the plan that He has for our lives. I pray that each of us will have the courage to pick up our cross and then follow Christ as He leads.

  1. An excellent thought for today, Angel! We must understand that we all have our “crosses to bear” in this life, but as Christians there is special purpose in toting ours. We learn to endure for the hope which we have in Christ as we go along. The Lord is always with us and willing to help and sustain us when we stumble or fall under the weight of our cross…
