“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 16:24




Jesus said,

“If any of you wants to be my follower,

you must turn from your selfish ways,

take up your cross,

and follow me.”


– Matthew 16:24 (NLT)






Following Jesus means taking the way of the cross

– and it leads to life!


Jesus encourages us and insists that we embrace the crosses in our life,

thereby accepting sacrifice and suffering

as we follow His directions

to eternal life and joy in the place He has prepared for us.


But selfishness, self-centeredness and pride

can persuade us to avoid carrying the cross at any cost,

even if it ultimately means not following Christ.

If we choose this way, it will lead us to death…to nothingness.






Jesus, I want to follow You.

Please help me carry my burdens,

and lead me along Your path to eternal life.
