Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
Anyone! God initiates but then we respond! Do you have the desire to follow Jesus? Have you given this much thought? I want to live out the rest of my days, this side of eternity, following after Christ. Then these 3 things I will do. 1st Deny my selfish ambitions. 2nd take up my cross, accept the death to my flesh, & 3rd, follow and mimic Jesus. To say and do what He says and does. This is the true mark of a disciple of Christ.
