HE WHO DOES NOT TAKE HIS CROSS
For Christians, the cross is the instrument of Christ’s atoning death. It is only through the cross of Christ and through the blood of His cross that we have our salvation. Jesus’ death on the cross was for all people. However, not everyone is saved. How does His saving work become effective in our lives? A quick answer would be to say that it becomes effective by faith. In this lesson, we will see how this faith is expressed.
Jesus had to bear the cross for man. But He said also that there is another cross, a cross which man is to bear for Him. Let us read Matthew 10:38-39.
