In the Scriptures, Jesus Christ inseparably linked discipleship with carrying your own cross. Jesus said, "Whoever does not carry his own cross and follow Me, cannot be My disciple (Luke 14:27)." Thus Jesus Christ bore our sins on His cross, but He also said we must bear our own cross. What does this mean? The Scriptures reveal there are two essential aspects of the cross of Christ: first and foremost, there is Christ's completed work on the cross, and then there is the on-going work of the cross in our lives if we permit it. It is critical that we understand both of these aspects of the cross if we want to be Christ's disciples. This eBook explains how we can carry our cross and lose our soul-life, so that we can know Christ and abide in Him.
