You are Invited

Then (Jesus) said to them all: “Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me.” Luke 9:23

Today you are invited to consider how you take up your cross each day and follow Jesus.  How do you live the life of a disciple?  (The word disciple means follower or learner.) What do you need to deny yourself in order to be Jesus’ disciple?  How do you feel about doing this?  What is your cross to you?  What do you want to say to God about these things?  Where do you need His help? Ask Him to show you how He helps you to carry your cross every day as you respond to His command ‘Follow Me”?  Tell Him how you feel about His answer.  Spend time in praise that He knows your situation and is there for you – even when you cannot feel His presence.

May God bless you with a clear understanding of how He walks with you every day and helps you to follow Him.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
