“Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
What Jesus is saying here is simply, “Just say” ‘No’ to “yourself” bring along your execution stake, so every time your fleshly desires come “up” you can say ‘No’ to them and execute “them!”
“As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
2 Samuel 22:31
Also, we need to ask what and who do we identify with? Is it the LORD, is it the world or do we go back and forth? Remember, His way is perfect!
“No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Today, let us deny ourselves and identify with Jesus, no matter what the cost! Don’t compromise, you may get ridiculed, made fun of or even left out. Just remember, Jesus will never leave you or forsake you. He really has you covered, so cling to Him today! May your day be richly blessed!
