Did You Know? (Sunday, September 29, 2019)

Taking up one’s cross is an analogy which means that “…Christ calls upon believers to be ready to sacrifice their selfish interests and to daily bear  reproach, misunderstanding and shame in their service for him, even as He did in life and death.”

(C. F. Pfieffer, H. F. Vos, J. Rea, Wycliffe Bible Dictionary, 2008).
