Matthew 16:24. Then Jesus said to his disciples,
Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
It’s not always easy to sacrifice and give when it takes away from our desires or takes us out of our comfort zone. But it’s all a part of being Christ-like.
We can never outdo Him but our lives are supposed to reflect Jesus in hopes of the people we meet will want this Jesus we say we so dearly love.
