imgresMy friends We are God’s Children, and we are told that God’s desire is that we CARRY THE CROSS THAT HE CARRIED, But Biblically, every command that Jesus gives us to get through this life to the next is not A easy PATH to follow. Love our enemies, Matthew 5:44

Turn the other cheek. Matthew 5:39 Making choices between my family and God. Matt. 19:29 And Then the toughest command of them all “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and TAKE UP THERE CROSS DAILY, and follow me…. Luke 9:23-24

Yes to most of us that happy life Christ wants for us is unattainable. But my friends it’s all about believing in A God who knows our strengths, and our weaknesses, In Isaiah 40:29 it tells us “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak”

Christ on the Mount of Olives as He was praying recognized the difficult road before him. And how unattainable the Journey was from a human standpoint, But as Jesus Christ, and our example He also knew, only through THE CROSS could we as His Children be strengthen, and saved.

imagesSo on His way to Calvary Humanity was weaken, and it was at that moment that He needed help to carry HIS CROSS. But my friends we must not make any mistakes. Only Christ as God and Man, could die for our sins on THE CROSS. So today as we carry OUR CROSS,

Yes, It will be A difficult journey. “But we have Christ Himself to help us with the load, because He knows the burden of  THE CROSS. And “Our Lord desires us to lay aside this yoke of bondage. He invites us to accept His yoke; He says, “My yoke or(CROSS)is easy, and My burden or (CROSS) is light.”

imagesYes Christ Journey to THE CROSS, His humanity knew the path would seem impossible. But He stayed focused, Oh my friends the power of CONCENTRATION and He also had His Fathers WORD, Oh my friends the power of His WORD. And He Never stopped praying, oh my friends the power of PRAYER.  And through his FAITH, on THE CROSS,

Humanity, along with the king of kings and Lord of Lords joined together AS ONE to save us, and to say without A doubt to the universe IT IS FINISHED. Oh my friends the power of FAITH. Today our Savior sees the end from the beginning.

Yes he knows every situation and circumstances that we may encounter in our lives and He has provided thousands  of ways to help us CARRY OUR CROSS. Because as Children of the King we must never forget.

That each of us like Christ, through God’s WORD and SPIRIT can JOIN FORCES with OUR FAITH AND ENDURANCE and  be saved through THE CROSS WE BEAR FOR CHRIST. Oh my God what Hope that gives EACH OF US.

And so my friends He waits, He knocks,  for his sole purpose is to save us with all the power, and strength, that got him to Calvary and THE CROSS, He gives us to lighten our load on our Journey to the Promise land. Yes  The path will be very difficult.

But like our savior victory can be ours through THE CROSS. So as Christ agonized and prayed for strength to christ_knocks_on_the_door_by_hdchristianimages-d4q84tvfinish the course, we must do the same as time moves toward Christ soon return and the trials of this world seem unbearable, as we ask ourselves, where is God.

It is at that moment, we must look back on His promises. when He tells us “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Also in Psalms 55:22 it says cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. So my friends today, ask yourself are the comfort and pleasures of this world standing in the way of  ME, CARRYING MY CROSS FOR CHRIST?

If so then ask yourselves what must I do to carry MY CROSS for the Master. But also remember, if it get’s too heavy on your journey I know imagesHe will be right there to help you get to, THE FINISH LINE. So my friends remember God calls us to pursue righteousness THROUGH THE CROSS.

To sustain a drive toward excellence THROUGH THE CROSS. God also calls us to have a life of purpose far beyond what you think yourself capable of living THROUGH THE CROSS, Because He will sustain.

And provide us with the adequate amount of strength to fulfill His will in our life THROUGH THE CROSS.

And in the earth made new when we walk those streets of gold we will be able to say without A doubt, YES THE CROSS WAS HEAVY BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH IT.



So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
