In our message this week, we’ll hear the cross speak challenge to our selfishness as Jesus calls us to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Him! The cross says there is life for those who lay down their life now. The cross says we suffer now, but there’s coming a day of celebration. The cross says we may be in the lowest place now, but we’ll be lifted up to the highest place. The cross says there may be death now, but there is coming a day of resurrection! Don’t count yourself out. Don’t see only the suffering. Don’t get caught up in the pain. The cross still speaks!
