Message 2- Take Up Your Cross Daily

Introduction: Last week we began to introduce the concept of the job description Jesus gives us concerning following Him as a disciple. The three steps Jesus gave us build upon one another. We consider first the meaning of denying self. To deny self is an internal work done in our minds and in our will. This is a choice to renounce a self-centered lifestyle and to place Jesus’ Kingdom and His righteousness in first place This choice of denying self prepares our hearts for the next step which is to take up your cross daily. To understand this second aspect of the job description we will break down the statement seeking the Holy Spirit to lead us to truth.

Message 1: Denying Self

Introduction: In John 8: 31 a distinction is made between a believer in Jesus Christ and a disciple of Jesus Christ. Jesus spoke to the Jews who believed in Him. He then called them to be disciples. This meant they needed to move to a greater level of faith and obedience in order to be considered disciples. In our focus passage, in Luke 9, Jesus has just quizzed His 12 disciples concerning who He is and Peter declared Jesus to be the Messiah (the Christ) the Son of the living God. Jesus tells them of His suffering to come and then calls others to be His followers. He gives them a job description which has 3 parts. To be a disciple one must: 1. Deny self 2. Take up his cross daily 3. Follow Jesus
