Rutherford: crosses

Wednesday, March 28, 2018
    [Jesus:] “Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.”
    —Matthew 10:37-38 (NIV)
    Come all crosses, welcome, welcome! so I may get my heartful of my Lord Jesus.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Feb. 20, 1637, p. 191 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 10:37-38; 16:24; Mark 8:34; Luke 9:23-24; 14:29; 2 Cor. 12:7-10; Phil. 1:29-30
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill my heart with Your presence.
