What does “taking up your cross” mean here?
Taking up the Cross of Christ is nothing more than opening our mouth and telling the world what he’s done for us. That’s what the first disciples did that’s what we need to do too. On a daily basis we as his children need to tell others about our loving father and what He has done for us through His Son Jesus.
Every child of God in their position in life and profession in life runs by people around their daily walk. If we pray as we go the Holy Spirit of God will lead us to the people God wants us to share Jesus. We just need to be ready to speak. After forty six years of seeking to do this, I still have to force my mouth to open. The father of fear always fights us when we want to share the Gospel. We re in a Spiritual war.
