背起自己的十字架 [Take Up Our Crosses]

书卷:马可福音(新约)
作者:马可

马可福音8章34节:“于是,叫众人和门徒来,对他们说:若有人要跟从我,就当舍己,背起他的十字架,来跟从我。”

今日默想:我们的“己”是拦阻人跟从主的大患。我们必须拒绝自己,才能无条件的顺服主的带领,走主的道路。在约翰福音19章15节里,十字架的口号乃是“除掉他”。所以背十字架就是除掉自己,也就是舍己。对世界而言,我们自己是死的。我们要跟从主,就必须舍己。要舍己,就必须背起自己的十字架。主为每个人安排的十字架各有不同,各人有各人的十字架。

Book: Mark (New Testament)
Author: Mark

Mark 8:34 :“When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, ‘Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

Today’s Meditation: Our ‘self’ is the barricade that is blocking us from following the Lord. We must deny ourselves in order to obey the Lord and His way unconditionally. In John 19:15, ‘away with Him’ is the slogan for the cross. Thus, taking up the cross is denying ourselves. We are dead to the world. We need to deny ourselves to follow the Lord. We need to take up our crosses to deny ourselves. God arranged different crosses for different people.
