THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
On our iron there’s a setting for permanent press.
But it doesn’t work!
Every time I wash that shirt or those pants, I hafta iron ‘em again!
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.
Light from the Word.
The cross was a symbol of disgrace, humility and the burden of death.
The term “take up his cross” is a figurative expression.
It literally means to shoulder the burden of whatever is considered
disgraceful or humiliating and continue serving Christ.
Whatever the world thinks of you, Christian, continue to live for Jesus!
This requires a “daily” commitment!
It means dying to self, and living for Christ!
It is only in living FOR Christ that you have REAL LIFE!
There can be no Christian without a cross!
For one must “deny” self and live FOR Christ!
This takes takes personal glory out of the equation!
WASH yourself daily in prayer for forgiveness.
WEAR Christ daily in your life.
Can you say, today, that you are living FOR Christ?
