How many times have we heard, "Take you sins to the Cross, CRUCIFY them and know JESUS"! What about, "No Pain, No Gain"; or, "you will face hardships and be assaulted by the world if you take up your Cross and follow JESUS!" I REALLY DON'T THINK SO! When we know JESUS, do we think about hardship, being CRUCIFIED or really seek the "things of the world"? When we "Take up our Cross" are we doing it with the attitude that Pain and Tribulation will get us to Heaven? Or, when we take up our Cross are we following JESUS, and being Transformed like HIM, with Love, Compassion, Wisdom and HIS SPIRIT? In PERFECT LOVE there is no room for fear! Does taking up our cross provide Spiritual Light and Understanding through pain and affliction? John 8:12, "I am the LIGHT...LIGHT of Life..." Our only SUFFERING is when we have FEAR! "There is no fear in LOVE..." There is no fear of this world or life beyond this world. Get the LIGHT OF LIFE (JESUS); GET A LIFE!
