Carrying Your Cross

In a previous post, we talked about denying ourselves and carrying our cross daily (see Carry Your Own Cross) as Jesus spoke of in Luke 9:23-26. Here we will discuss this in a little more detail. How do we show others that we are followers of Christ? What does it mean to carry your own cross?

Let us start each day with an attitude of worship to the God who loves us beyond measure and has given us so much to be thankful for.
