Luke 9:1-36 - Key

v23

And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

A boy at Unit 8 asked me what a verse like this meant. I said that it doesn't mean to literally carry a cross. The cross stands for suffering and dying the way Jesus did on the cross. Taking it up means being willing to suffer and die for Jesus.

Application

When I have to suffer for following the Lord, I'll thank Him for the opportunity.
