Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus
When Jesus asks of us to take up the cross He means that we need to be willing to die in order to follow Jesus. This is called “dying to self.” It’s a call to absolute surrender
24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
