The Greatest Challenge of Discipleship

Matthew 16:24

Three Steps to Becoming a cruciform disciple:

1. Deny self

2. Take up your cross

3. Follow Jesus

Points to ponder:

1. The cross is what we focus upon.

2. Our cross carrying will not always be understood.

3. We are to carry our cross 24/7.

4. Renounce a worldly tendency this week.

5. Symbolically, carry (or wear) a cross as a reminder.


Simon of Cyrene

“As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.”

(Luke 23:26)
