prayer diary Friday 21 February 2014 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them 'If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 
Mark 8.34

Reflection
The Christian life can not be treated as a temporary enthusiasm; nor can it be taken up in fits and starts, with the person being a saint one day and pagan the next. Christ calls on those who would follow him to deny themselves and take up their cross. And as Christ himself showed us, a cross is something that once it is taken up can only be put down at the end.
