Message: Jesus as a Template for Transformation: Part 4) “Take Up Your Cross Daily”
by Rev. John Song
The Seven Week Lenten Sermon Series continues with Part 4) “Take Up Your Cross Daily.” This commend is the second of three commands that Jesus required of us for transformation. What did Jesus mean when he said, “take up your cross daily”? (Luke 9:23) St. Paul wrote in Galatians 6:5, “For all must bear their own loads.” We will investigate the meaning of “Take Up Your Cross Daily.”
“Eventually we all have to accept full and total responsibility for our actions,
everything we have done, and have not done.”
