Chaplain's Corner: A daily decision
During his sermon at a North Augusta community service a few weeks ago, the Rev. Doug Page reminded us of a decision we make every day: “Am I willing to take up my cross and follow Jesus?”
As I looked at the congregation of persons from various churches in our city, I felt encouraged; however, although the fellowship and love of others strengthen our spiritual journies, no one else can make this decision for us.
“Then he said to them all: ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me’” (Luke 9:23).
