“Whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
When we follow Jesus it requires doing what He does. Jesus returns love and compassion when persecuted. He showed us this when He literally picked up a cross and carried it…finally forgiving those who crucified Him and saying, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” Following Jesus will require letting go of self-centered desires (ego) and then carrying the burdens that come with surrendering ourselves to a Greater Power. Jesus promised that if we did this and followed His example we would lose the lives our egos were demanding…but find the lives God wanted for us. In other words…we would discover our “true selves.” Surrender your struggles to God, follow Jesus and find true life. As Jesus put it, “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark 1:15).
