Which Cross Do We Carry?

One of the strange things under the sun is a “cross-less” Christianity. The cross of Christendom is a “no-cross,” an ecclesiastical symbol. The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is a place of death! Let each one be careful which cross he carries! Thousands turn away from Jesus Christ because they will not meet His conditions. He watches them as they go, for He loves them, but He will make no concessions. Admit one soul into the kingdom by compromise and that kingdom is no longer secure. Christ will be Lord, or He will be Judge. Every man must decide whether he will take Him as Lord now, or face Him as Judge then! “If any man will . . . let him follow me.” Some will rise and go after Him, but others give no heed to His voice. So the gulf opens between man and man, between those who will and those who will not. The Man, the kindly Stranger who walked this earth, is His own proof. He will not put Himself again on trial; He will not argue. But the morning of the judgment will confirm what men in the twilight have decided!

Verse

Having made peace through the blood of his cross. Colossians 1:20

Thought

Let each one be careful which cross he carries! Thousands turn away from Jesus Christ because they will not meet His conditions.

Prayer

Lord, I will carry Your cross. I will follow You obediently. I will remember the high price of my redemption.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
