My Cross

In the near distance, I see a cross, roughly hewn--without splendor--it calls to me. My flesh cowers in fear, resisting this somber relic. A battle rages within me. My spirit strangely drawn to its unnatural beauty. I slowly move closer. The unseen finger of God carefully etches a name into its cross-beam."It is MINE!" A voice without face gently speaks.

"Come, this is now yours to carry, take it up and follow Me." My flesh cries out,
"NO! NO! I WILL NOT DIE!" "Be still," my spirit whispers, "Only one of us can bear this heavy load." With tears of joy I embrace my cross, bow my head, and vow. "I will follow--though it slay me--I will follow!"

Each of us must come to a place in our walk with God, when we are faced with our cross. The question is, will we embrace it? The decision to crucify the flesh is neither easy nor popular, but oh-so-necessary! Thank God that he took up His cross, so that we might be able to bear ours!

And He said to them all,"If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." Luke 9:23 (KJV)
Oh, Lord Help me to crucify my flesh, my wants, my desires, and to only embrace Your will for my life!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Deeply moving and thought provoking. Thank you for stepping out and sharing your writing.

A beautifully written call to enter His inner circle of intimate friends, via embracing His death! No, not a popular mesage. John, I walked with Him for decades, even served many years in traveling ministry, before I was ready to cherish the daily cross He had prepared for my Self. Following Him caused me to lose all that I thought I had built over the years. A "wilderness" lived in close fellowship with Yahshua is far better than any palace made of my own efforts and pride! A precious few will dare to click on this and will be greatly blessed.
