Bible verses to build your life on
Jesus said: whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock ~ Matthew 7:24

How heavy is your cross? ~ study
Then Jesus said to them all, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?
As we, as a culture, are moved further from the truth (by entertainment), it seems more and more people don't want the cost of the cross, because they want their version of His yoke to be superlight! Friends, we must not let this continue on. We need to keep growing ourselves (me included) to remember that work is still hard, even with Christ, and trials and discipline are too - and they are essential, meaning we need to embrace them. And, I'm finding - I, yes me, am still having to learn how to deny myself, take up His cross and follow Him (without complaining) but even more - willingly, passionately, boldly. ~ I thought I would say this to encourage others who are growing in and learning the same things! ~ your bro/friend and a growing servant/life-slave of Jesus, SH :)
