"...Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." - Mark 8 V34

"He must increase, but I must decrease." - John 3 V30

To follow our Lord Jesus Christ is a commitment that every Christian ought to make. Salvation came with a price that our Lord Jesus Christ paid on the cross with His own life, also now there is a price every believer will have to pay to follow Christ. Our Lord said every believer ought to deny himself take up his cross and follow the Lord every day. This requires trust and faith hand in hand and we should let our Lord increase in us and our self decrease. Every believer's motto should be, "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain". Are you willing to live with this motto? Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
