Sorry I’m so late in posting! My husband had to sing at a wedding today…out of town, so I am just now getting around to blogging 🙂 Since it’s so late…I’ll make it short.
The verse…the thought I’d like to leave with you today is this:
“Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.” -Mark 8:34
Look at that first part. If you are planning on following Jesus, you have to stop doing what YOU want to do, and start obeying Him. It’s not easy to follow Jesus, and He made that very clear when He said: “take up your cross”; He was saying…do the hard thing…and follow Me.
Take a look at this little poem I found…
“Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At thy feet its treasure store,
Take myself, and I will be
Ever only, all for Thee.” -Unknown
You have to lose yourself to find Jesus!
