Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - August 10

August 10

Take Up Your Cross

God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

>Galatians 6:14, nkjv

The cross is not just a symbol of love or a fashion statement. The cross is your daily decision to deny yourself,

                                                      your rights,

                                          your wants,

                              your dreams,

                  your plans,

      your goals,

and deliberately, wholeheartedly, unreservedly live out your commitment to His will and His way and His Word and His wisdom. The cross is your decision to live for Jesus. Period. No “ifs,” “ands,” “buts,” or “maybes.”

Would you take up your cross . . . every day . . . and follow Him?
