What R U Up 2?
Week Two — Take Up
“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” — Mark 8: 31-38
Jesus was very clear that following him might not be a smooth ride. He was bound to choose the just way, not the easy way, through life. To take up the cross was to lose one’s life — to let go of certain expectations of safety and acceptance in order to stand for the Gospel message of love. How are we to take up the causes of Jesus — justice, righteousness, and mercy in our day?
