He that doth not take his cross and follow after me, is not worthy of me. Matthew 10.38.

To love the Lord is His only demand. Without denying self, no one can love the Lord. Here He does not mention His own cross. The emphasis here is taking up the cross. To be laid on the cross occurs only once: there He carries us. To take up the cross is a daily affair: here we carry Him.

What is meant by taking up the cross? It is submitting to God from the heart. In the Garden of Gethsemane our Lord had his mind set on doing the Father’s will. And so He went from there to take up the cross. Taking up the cross, therefore, is being determined to do God’s will and nothing else.
