In today's Mind Makeover blog Ify speaks about what it actually means to bear our Cross in Christ, deny ourselves and really follow Jesus. The scripture Matthew 16:24-25  reminds Ify about the call upon her life;  '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.' Ify makes a valid point that Jesus doesn't force us to come after him or choose the way of salvation. He gives us free will. For those of us that make that decision to

live for him, we have to surrender ourselves wholeheartedly with a complete denial of self. Taking up our cross is a daily requirement of absolute surrender to live for Jesus. This rewarding decision comes with an understanding and willingness to die for the gospel. It comes with the understanding that Jesus died for the remission of all our sins. Being passionate about our faith acknowledges that Jesus has risen and his spirit is well and truly living within us. Today's Challenge is to truly go after Christ 100%. Think about what that means for you and act on it.
