Most people see the Cross as the place for forgiveness of sin, which is true. But some refuse to go to the Cross and say, "Jesus, have Your way with my life." It is possible that you want His crown, but not His Cross; His blessing, but not His burden; His success, but not His servanthood. Matthew 16:24 says, Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." If you have taken up your cross, then you are truly a follower (a disciple) of Jesus Christ?
How do you see YOUR cross?
