    To carry my cross and follow Jesus means, All troubles and tribulations in life dont distract me from doing whats right in Gods sight whatsoever life throws at me, i just trust God to see me through and continue doing God 's will amidst the troubles.
  • I believe Jesus is saying (Luke 14:27) that we must put God first in our lives and we must serve God in His name. We must love and help others around us. We must do as Jesus did and fulfill our purpose.
  • Sigmund Ivarsson for verse 27
    To carry your cross means to endure whatever your mission in life is. My twin brother and my siters and my parents are all unbelievers . But really what I have had to endure the most is Christians. They are my cross to bear. I have never suffered more that at the hands of Christians. I have been kicked out of churches, banned from discusions, black listed and persecuted for telling the truth. How do you feel when you read my words?
