As the Holy Word of the Lord tells us, in order to know God and become His children and partakers of the great crown of life, we must carry our crosses and follow our Lord, who also suffered on the cross for our sins.
We must recognize that this fight is not easy, but it is good that you know that you are not alone in this fight, God is by your side helping you at every moment, so do not be afraid, take up your cross, follow the Lord and the Lord will give you new strength so that you can succeed.
To be worthy of the glory of God, to be close to the Lord, you must do the following:
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
In this writing, we can see what Jesus clearly told the twelve apostles, that they would have many difficulties, but that is why they should not love these things, because many would rise up against them and even their own relatives would be against them.
That is why the Master tells them that to be worthy of Him, they must take up their cross and follow Him, because He also stripped Himself of everything and came into the world and gave everything for the salvation of humanity.
It is time to pay the price for following Christ. This path is not easy as many paint it. So, we invite you today to take up your cross and follow the Master, so that you can be deserving and heir of this great crown of life.
