The Cross Store.Luke.9:23

1.1.        LUKE 9:23.AND HE SAID TO THEM ALL,IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME AFTER ME,LET HIM DENY HIMSELF AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY AND FOLLOW ME.

      Lord, I’ll take any cross that you have for me…but do you have any that are padded? I’m looking to be relevant you know.
No, how about a small one I could fit in my pocket, so I’m not so obvious?
No, my choice is just that ugly wood one? That’s pretty shoddy workmanship; my construction buddies will laugh.
What’s that? It’s either one of these or forget the whole thing? But Lord, I want to be your disciple, I mean, just being with you; that’s all that counts; but life has to have a balance, too. But you don’t understand — nobody lives that way today! Who is going to be attracted by this self-denial bit? I mean, I want to; but let’s not over do it. Start getting radical like this, and they’ll have me off to the insane asylum. Know what I mean?
I mean being a disciple is challenging and exciting and I want to do it; but I do have some rights, you know. Now let’s see — no blood — OK? I just can’t stand the thought of that, Lord… Lord? Jesus? Now where do you suppose He went?
