Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”
You have free will that I have given you. You are free to choose what you will do, how you will spend your money and on what you will give your time. Being My disciple is the laying aside of yourself and seeking Me for the next steps you take. It’s a deeper relationship than just reading My Word and saying simple quick prayers. It’s spending more time with Me so you can learn My heart and discern My voice. It’s a process and a journey, but true fulfillment is in active participation with Me. Ask Me and I’ll teach you what you need to learn and help you grow into who I have always intended you to be. When you step out into the world today, see those around you with My eyes and listen to Me, for I am speaking to you and need you to speak up and show love to those around you. Listen carefully so you don’t miss out on opportunities that I have laid out before you… deny yourself and pick up your cross, following My lead, the world needs you.
