When we say we "take up our Cross" to follow JESUS (Matthew 16:24), do we visualize commitment to pain, torment and hardships? THE CROSS is not designed to inflict continual pain, IT IS DESIGNED FOR DEATH! Does our CROSS bring an end to our own "self-life", "self-indulgent" passions and desires? Do we give over our whole self; our wishes, desires, precautions and control to CHRIST? Is our ULTIMATE CROSS the relinquishing of our will to the WILL OF GOD? OR ARE WE "SUPERFICIAL SAINTS" WHERE JESUS HAS TO DO ALL OF THE DYING?
