Take Up Your Cross

GUWG-Cross-NewWe continue our journey through every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.

Here’s what it reeeeeally means to be a disciple:

Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.

(Mark 8:34-38; Matthew 16:24-27; Luke 9:23-26)

Do what Jesus says: Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow him.
