Take up your cross and follow me
Then he said to the crowd, If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. - Luke 9:23
What does it mean to follow Jesus? In a nutshell, to follow Christ means to live a live that is Christ-like, not like the world lives. Jesus was hated by the leaders during the time He came to earth because of His teachings went against the wisdom of the world and they still do till this day. God purpose for us is to serve others, give to the needy, to be strong in faith, to love those that despise you, and to walk by faith and not by sight. We get carried away by the things of this world hence pushing us away from the presence of God.
Have a great day and God bless.
