Take Up Your Cross August 7th 2015

Are you driving against the flow of traffic?

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (2 Timothy 3:12 KJV)

Living godly in an ungodly world is like going against the tide, or driving against the flow of traffic, or living peculiar and bright in a wicked and dark world.  Those who boldly profess Christ shine a light that cannot be contained or blown out by any contrary winds blowing about in this dark and stormy world.

There is a cost to picking up and carrying forth your cross. Living the crucified life does not come cheaply. There is an individual and a collective cost to following the ways of Jesus in this world which is bent on following the god of this world.  Proclaim His name and live a life that points to Him and you will pay a price, however, there are also many rewards and blessings to be had in boldly professing His name.  God always rewards those who are faithful and obedient to Him.

Jesus said:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)
