Spurgeon: carrying one's cross

Friday, May 11, 2018
    Then [Jesus] said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”
    —Luke 9:23-24 (NIV)
    There are no crown wearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers here below.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), Gleanings Among the Sheaves, New York: Sheldon, 1869, p. 57 (see the book)
    See also Luke 9:23-24; Matt. 10:38; 16:24-25; 1 Cor. 9:25; 2 Tim. 4:8; Rev. 4:9-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me not to spurn the cross You send me.
