Then Jesus said to His disciples: ‘Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for Me will find it. – Matthew 16:24-25
Lord, teach me to take up my cross daily and follow You. I will not do this reluctantly because Your burden is light and Your yoke is easy. In spite of everything, I will gladly follow and serve You. Even though I am weak, I will be successful in You.
