Take Up Your Cross Daily?
In Luke 9:23, Jesus tells the crowd to “take up their cross daily.”
But the word “daily” is not found in many reputable manuscripts. Also, it is not found in the parallel teachings of Jesus that we see in Matthew 16:24 and Mark 8:34.
So do we need to kill our “selves” spiritually every day? This was Cynthia’s question when she wrote in to our ministry.
In this short video clip, I address Cynthia’s question and discuss what it means that we can now “count ourselves alive to God” instead of trying to die every day.
