Following Jesus means taking up our cross each day, and giving our all to Jesus with no reservations! True christian self-denial is founded upon a supreme love for the Lord Jesus. This sinful, secular culture promotes self-seeking and self-indulgence. We must daily, by the power of the Holy Spirit resist this mindset, deny self, and follow Jesus. To deny self is a daily discipline; it means saying no to pride, sinful indulgence, love of ease and worldliness. This is a daily battle we can win in Christ. We must not water down of dilute the serious demands of Jesus in Luke 9:23. His call to being His disciple is often overlooked by a lukewarm, entertainment mad church. Being a disciple of Jesus involves a complete re-ordering of our priorities. We now love Jesus and choose to please Him rather than self.


To carry the cross daily means to confess our loyalty to Jesus and obey Him inspite of ridicule or persecution. We identify with Him now in surrender, suffering, and sacrifice. This is a daily choice empowered by God.

1. Matt 10:37 "He who loves father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me, and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me."

2. Matt 10:38 "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me."

3. Mark 1:17 "Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men."

4. Luke 9:23 "If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me."

5. Luke 9:24 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it."

6. John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.

7. John 10:27 "My sheep hear My voice and I know them, and they follow Me."

8. John12:26 "If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor."

Floyd McClung - "Countless numbers of believers are driven by the desire to consume to excess, to live for themselves, and to have a good time - a lifestyle which is incompatible with biblical holiness. Our total devotion must be to Jesus."

Warren Wiersbe - "We must first say no to ourselves not simply to pleasures or possessions, but to self and then take up our cross and follow Christ daily."

A.W. Tozer - "The cross is a radical thing. The cross ends to old life of His true followers. A shallow, worldly leadership would modify the cross to please the entertainment mad saintling who will have their fun even within the sanctuary. But to do so is to court spiritual disaster and risk the anger of the Lamb turned Lion!"

J.C. Ryle - "Surely a christian should be willing to give up anything which stands between him and Heaven. A Christianity that costs nothing is worth nothing! A cheap Christianity, without a cross, will prove in the end a useless Christianity, without a crown. He is not meant to live a life of ease and laziness. He must never imagine for a moment that he can sleep and doze along the way to Heaven."
