The weight of the cross
Luke 14: 27 “And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”
We have to carry our cross with us because we never know when we will be asked to get on it.
This week a church planters 12 year old boy in Cameroon was set upon by some youths. He was told to deny Christ which he refused to do. The mob so viciously attacked him that he died. He didn’t know that day would be his last day of his short life on this life, but he left his house carrying his cross.
I wonder what decisions or reactions we would make today if we felt the weight of the cross on our shoulders.
