How Do You See the Cross?

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?

I agree with you Apostle 100% but for me I may allow my fears to prevent me from moving forward into God's plan for my life.

I view the Cross as a place to take all of burdens, my fears, my guilt, and I also see it as a place to give all of me to Jesus, because He paid the cost to be the boss.

Praise God....this is very true Apostle...I find that in applying this "letting Jesus have HIS way in my life" has not only strengthened me spiritually it has helped me grow as person in the Lord

I agree with what you said regarding accepting HIS crown and Cross...I know that allowing Jesus to have HIS way in my life has not only allowed to grow spiritually but grow as an individual.
