Speaking of expecting great things (see my previous post), I have reached over 200 followers here on my site. I want to thank everyone who reads my posts for taking time to consider what is offered here, and I sincerely pray you find what you read to richly bless your spirit and bring you nearer in faith to our merciful God. I am humbled and praise God for the privilege of reaching others with His Word and the grace and hope of our Lord Jesus Christ.
[C]ome, take up the cross, and follow MeMark 10:21 (NKJV)
Jesus gives those who would belong to Him three short imperatives here: come, take and follow. First, we come to Christ with nothing in order to receive everything. Second, He offers us the cross, the emblem of a true Christian. And in taking up the cross, we take up all it represents: both it’s difficulty and delight, burden and blessing, trial and triumph. But finally, in doing so, we show ourselves to be true followers of His. What do these words mean to you? Come, take and follow. Three simple words that can change your life, both now and for eternity.
