Luke 9

Read Luke 9:23-27

Jesus here is showing us what it means to be a follower of him. I look at this verse a lot and realize that I miss that mark, but thank God for his grace. Jesus tells us to deny ourselves and to take up our cross daily. First to deny ourselves. This is pretty obvious. We need to stop trying to do things our way and start doing them Gods way.

To pick up our cross is something a little different. Jesus picked up His cross because He was willing to submit himself and die for all of us. That kind of submission is the kind of submission that we are called to. We are supposed to submit and give up everything we have to God.

Am I following Jesus?

Am I denying myself?

Am I picking up my cross daily?
