Taking up your cross daily means crucify your flesh daily!
Luke 9:23 King James Version
“And He (Jesus) said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me."
Galatians 5:24 King James Version
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."
Taking up your cross daily means crucify your flesh and the sinful affections and lusts daily. It means saying no to the flesh’s sinful desires, habits, and lifestyle daily!
“Taking up the cross daily to follow Jesus is the BASIC duty of every Christian! But if you’re so froward as to ignore this BASIC duty, then surely God will show Himself froward to you as well and ignore all your prayers!" -Johnson and Pearl
Psalm 18:26 KJV
“With the pure thou wilt shew Thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew Thyself froward.
Psalm 66:18 King James Version
“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
“If we would deeply and thoroughly repent of any selfishness, laziness, carelessness, iniquity, sinful habits, worldliness, and prayerlessness, then it would be alot easier to go deeper in prayer, into the spirit of prayer, into the heart of God, into the power of God, and into the glory of God." -Johnson and Pearl
