Take up your cross and count the cost, bear your cross, submit to God’s power and will. This epistle was written for the churches today to encourage every believer to walk out their faith in true discipleship. These divine inspirations will help you to deal with any adversity, test, trial, or tribulation that happens in everyday life. “Take Up Your Cross” helps you recognize the vices of the world that keep us in bondage and enlightens you on how to represent the virtues of God. No matter what your role or function is in the Body of Christ, we must continue to grow, learn and mature in our faith until our purpose on earth is fulfilled. Now, take up your cross and be inspired to… Bear ridicule. Bear mockery. Bear jealousy. Bear hurt. Bear pain. Bear test. Bear disappointments. Bear rejection. Bear rumors. Bear insults. Bear mistakes. Bear challenges. Bear prejudices. Bear losses. Bear betrayal.
