“TAKE UP YOUR CROSS”. Part 1 : Wednesday April 4

Matthew 16:24

"Then said Jesus unto His disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."

As believers, we are disciples of Jesus of these days and HE is speaking to us in the above Bible passage that if any man/woman will follow HIM, there are two key things to do. First and foremost, deny himself/ herself. That means to be set apart and become a vessel unto honor. Secondly, the person to follow Jesus has his/her cross to carry in order to be able to follow Jesus.

Cross is the path to be connected with the power of resurrection. It is suffering with the fellowship of Jesus. To carry your cross and still follow Jesus is to experience Jesus. The cross comes to us in various ways, but our God is constant in giving us the victory same way. Amen.

What is your cross today? It may be too heavy to carry, but carry it. After the cross there was victory for Jesus. Therefore, after your cross, your victory is also guaranteed, in Jesus Name. The cross is the place where the flesh has to die and give way for victorious living. There will be two more parts that will go all the way to emphasize on what the “cross” of life might look like. No matter the cross, there is victory for you, in Jesus Name. Amen.

Prayer points for the day

1) Father, thank you for the season of victory, in Jesus Name.

2) Lord, forgive my sins by the blood of Jesus, in Jesus Name.

3) Father, thank you for the cross, in Jesus Name.

4) Lord, thank you for the victory after the cross, in Jesus Name.

6) Lord, give me the grace to carry my cross however heavy it might be in Jesus Name.

7) Father, let me encounter the power of resurrection in all the unsettled area of my life, in Jesus Name. Amen.

Have a blessed and wonderful day!
