    Vivian, amen! For Jesus said in Luke 9:23, "And he said unto them, if anyman will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me". Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

    in this verse i think that the Lord needs true worship from us,to be courageous and know that God is fighting for us. We need also to b obedient to Him as the three soldiers obeyed their Leader David and they were courageous no matter the philistines were in their camps so this calls on the cost of discipleship,we need to sacrifice no matter how the battle is hard but for God for he has victory.
