let him deny himself, and take up his cross,
and follow me” – Mark 8:34.

I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. Long time back, say, it was the beginning of this millennium, I received the following through mail and liked the fact of it. Hope you might like them too.

 

The cross which my Lord bids me take up and carry may assume different shapes. I may have to content myself with a lowly and narrow sphere, when I feel that I have capacities for much higher work. I may have to go on cultivating year after year, a field which seems to yield me no harvests whatsoever. I may be bidden to cherish kind and loving thoughts about someone who has wronged me–be bidden speak to him tenderly, and take his part against all who oppose him, and crown him with sympathy and succor. I may have to confess my Master amongst those who do not wish to be reminded of Him and His claims. I may be called to “move among my race, and show a glorious morning face,” when my heart is breaking.

There are many crosses, and every one of them is sore and heavy. None of them is likely to be sought out by me of my own accord. But never is Jesus so near me as when I lift my cross, and lay it submissively on my shoulder, and give it the welcome of a patient and unmurmuring spirit.

A prayer of the man “Lord the cross I bear is too heavy and I need your help”

Lord answered and said ” Leave the cross you bear in the next room where all the other crosses are kept and take the smaller one from the room”.

The man happily went inside the room and removed the cross from his shoulder and looking for the smaller one and the room was so big with different sizes of crosses.

One after another the man went through and found one, again happily he took the smaller one and came to Jesus telling him that he found the smaller cross.

Jesus was smiling and telling him that the cross, which he has selected is the same cross which he had removed form his shoulder.
