Take Up Your Cross

October 23, 2016 Speaker: Geoff Meadows

Topic: Sermon Scripture: Mark 8:34–8:38

Jesus spoke many difficult words to His disciples. Perhaps the hardest of all His teachings is the command to, "Take up his cross."

Taking up a cross is sometimes referenced when someone is dealing with a challenging person or situation. Our culture is more inclined to take up a bed than a cross. Why is it important to come to Jesus in this sacrificial kind of way? What is to gain at such a cost? Come hear Christ's timely invitation to bear a cross that we might wear a crown!
