On the one hand, Jesus says "deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me." On the other hand Jesus says "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." The message explains how is self-denial is a life "to the fullest".
Today we’re going to look at a topic that is very personal. The scripture is from Luke 9:23
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
Just hearing these words is difficult. Putting them into practice seems utterly hopeless, unrealistic.
