Forced to Carry the Cross
Scripture: Mathew 27:32 As they were going out they met a man from Cyrene named Simon and they forced him to carry the cross
Observation: Forced him to carry the cross. Jesus says to take up your cross and follow me. How many times I feel I’m forced yet my Lord willingly took the cross for me. He asks so little for giving me so much
Application: I should gladly take the cross and carry it knowing my Lord is with me and carry it honor to him.
My burdens are so small yet how I complain. I need to stop complaining and just do what I know my God wants me to do.
Prayer: My Lord give me the strength to gladly take my cross and follow you knowing you are with me each step of the way.
