Taking up your Cross
“If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me.” (Matthew 16:24) Have you ever wondered what Jesus meant by taking up your cross? Have you ever wanted to know what is the actual power of the cross? In this book, the amazing reality of how Jesus calls us to live will take you deeper in your faith than you have ever been before. But be warned, these words will awaken within you a desire you would not have expected.
We are living in an age where comfort and security are highly valued. But have we been lulled into a false sense of security? Are we sitting targets for the enemy? If satan decides to persecute the Western Church, will we stand strong and not renounce the faith?
Jesus said in Matthew 24:9-10, “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of Me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other.” This end time warning stands out like a beacon, counselling us to prepare for this advent. We must become a new people with a new attitude to cope with this threat.
This book has been written so that those who would otherwise betray and hate each other and turn away from the faith, in this prophesied time of world and Church upheaval, would be reduced in number.
