“And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” –Luke 9:23
I was talking with my mom yesterday, and we were talking about cycles in life. There’s a yearly cycle, a monthly cycle, and a daily cycle.
And she brought up an interesting point…We as Christians make a choice each day whether or not to abide in Christ. Each day is its own day. The next day, just like we need more physical food, we also need more Spiritual food. We cannot live off of the past.
To use the words of Kyle Idleman, are you a fan or a follower? Jesus tells us that if we are to follow Him,we must pick up our cross daily.
John 15:4a says, “Abide in me, and I in you.”
Abiding in Christ is a choice. It’s a daily choice.
