As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I was thinking about a phrase I read in a reflection, “CROSS BEARERS FOR CHRIST.” What a powerful phrase, as each of us are called to be CROSS BEARERS! Being a CROSS BEARER, like Simon of Cyrene, means to take action, to not be afraid to get into the arena, to use our brokenness for service Many people sat back and watched Jesus go by, but Simon of Cyrene took action.
We hear in scripture, Matthew 16:24-26, “If anyone wishes to come after ME, He must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow ME.” The world will always remember the name of Simon of Cyrene because he helped Jesus with the cross. We all have CROSSES TO BEAR, and we need each other to help to carry them.
Today, think of friends who need help carrying the Cross and become a CROSS BEARER. Call them, visit them, enter into their passion and be a friend. What a beautiful world it would be if we helped each other carry our crosses.
Have a blessed day!
I look forward to hearing your words every morning, to start my day. Stay Blessed and thank you so much.
Have a wonderful and blessed day
