Becoming a follower of Christ isn’t a one-time emotional response to a speaker’s passionate story of the Cross. It’s a life-long commitment and glorious surrender to the One who called us by His grace and love. It’s a decision to follow the Lord in everything. It requires you to constantly take up your cross for Him. It is a continuous battle against the world and Enemy, who are doing everything they can to crush you. It is not self-glorifying. It does not exist to make you feel good. But it is everlasting. It is hope. It is peace. It is love. It is worth it. It is a saving grace. It is freedom. It is our purpose. It is a discipleship. But it’s not easy. So are you ready?
