TOPIC

Take Up The Cross




VERSE

"Then Jesus said to His disciples, 'If anyone desires to come after Me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.'"

- Matthew 16:24






SUMMARY

The cross, a dreaded instrument of Roman punishment, is also a symbol of suffering
by Christians in imitation of Christ.  Self-denial is for the sake of Christ and
the gospel, for a better life; it is not a punitive end in itself.
