Luke 9:23

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

"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."KJV

Our Lord came to this earth with no thought about himself, but only obeying the Father and reaching out to people wherever He went. All along the way He met with trials, tribulations, threats, and tests. If we truly want to be a follower of Jesus Christ, we will do the same. We will go about doing as Jesus did. We will ignore ourselves and all our wants and desires. We will seek to obey His Word and bring the message of salvation to every person we encounter. Oh, yes, this will cause many trials and difficulties for us, along with the normal tribulations that occur just living in this world. Every day, we will meet these problems with courage and joy that we are counted worthy to be called His own.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for failing to deny ourselves and choosing instead to satisfy our own longings and fulfillment. Stir our hearts with the desire to be Your disciples and carry the cross of Your honor each and every day. In His name we pray, Amen.
