A Cross Worth Bearing
“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. Whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Matt 16:24-25)
Some crosses are hardly a blip on the radar screen of our lives. Some come for season, and like winter in March, they seem to overstay their welcome. Others seem to take up permanent residence and become like the Ghost of Marley, haunting our past, present, and foreseeable future. Somehow, by Grace alone, in the midst of this tribulation of sanctifying proportions – remember, the interests of God are being achieved in us and around us – His very seed – for His great Glory! This, dear one, is a cross worth bearing!
