Meditation and announcement

Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.     Luke 14:27

How often do we try to avoid the cross? Our natural inclination is avoid discomfort, to flee from sacrifice. We seek comfort and security.

The New Testament offers so many lessons on true discipleship. When we read of those who accepted great hardships, even imprisonment and death in Jesus name, how many of us hope we never are faced with the same?

Jesus is calling us to step out of our comfort zone, to take risks in his name, to live boldly as his disciple in a world that doesn’t respect the Prince of Peace. What cross are you called to carry today? Jesus is calling. Will you respond?
