    To become the Lord's disciple, you must be ready to back the things of this world and face the cross alone.

    Talk about being smacked in the face! God why did I walk away...
  • Ray Lefebvre
    After my initial salvation 21 years ago according to the Word of God Acts 2:38 to bear His cross is to endure to the end. Matthew 10:22 To endure is to live in the Spirit by actively displaying the fruit of the Spirit Matthew 7:20 Galatians 5:22-23 God bless you all.
  • MockingBird
    The cross that Jesus bore was doing the will of the Father. He said "Not my will , but thy will be done". He did what God commanded of Him to do. He was willing to do what His Father commanded. My cross is to do whatever my Father commands me from His word.
  • Dwayne
    Mathew 10;37 If you love your father or mother more than me, you are not worthy of me. If you love son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of me. Meaning if you let anything take your mind off of God, you are not worthy of him. If you follow after the ways of the world, you have chosen the world. you cannot serve two masters. if something is a distraction from him, he will remove it.
  • Erma. losser
    I do not believe Jesus said Luke 14: 16 it is a error of some kind . Church teaches it means something else ,which is brain washing. If Jesus did not mean what he said then why say it ? The verse got mixed up through thousands of translations and hinders of years. We are not a wittness to anything in the bible.
