“Then he said to all, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
– Luke 9:23
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
Christ was not comfortable. From the day He was born in a stable, He was poor and had no place to lay his head. His earthly life, though full of love, was also full of suffering and persecution.
Too often do we deny our own crosses. Too often do we choose comfort and pleasure over Jesus. Let us make an examination of our own lives this week in prayer, and try to identify the comforts and pleasures that are preventing us from taking up our own crosses and following Christ.
