“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels” – Far too often, many Christians forget that Jesus clearly stated that we have to take up the cross DAILY as we follow him. Indeed, we can’t be so caught up in the things of this world that we lose sight of the end game, which is to be with the Lord eternally. Therefore, remember to keep your eyes on the prize of eternity with Jesus, and take up your cross and follow him each and every day!
