To Take Up Our Cross Means What?





What Is The Meaning Of The Phrase "We Should Take Up Our Cross"?



Q: Pls I still don't understand something in John 9:23, there Jesus said if anyone will come after me he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. So pls, what is the meaning of "we should take up our cross"?

A: It is not in John 9:23 but in Luke 9:23 in which Jesus said,
"...“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me."" To live in our own self-will means to do things in our own way and strength. God doesn't want us to live like that. Instead he wants us to do His will by His strength and live for His Glory, thus to take up our cross is to choose to walk in the will of God which he has personally preplanned and customized just for us.

God's ways might seem temporarily like a carrying a cross, but if we don't mind the temporary discomfort and keep walking in the will of God, soon we will be able to realize how blessed we are more than all to follow our God and to fulfill His destiny which He has prepared for us already
(Eph 2:10). It is foolishness that will make a person to lose his eternal reward in exchange for a temporal one. God's has never promised a comfortable path to live life abundantly, but he has promised a safe one with a reward that is out of this world (Luke 9:24-26).

Much Blessings......

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
