And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. – Luke 9:23
We must fully surrender.
We must deny ourselves, believing that it is only through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus that we can once again have a relationship with God.
We must fully commit.
Commit to taking up our cross every day. Commit to following Jesus with everything we have and are.
We must imitate Jesus.
We imitate Jesus by following him into making disciples of all nations, no matter where it takes us.
