Take up your cross and follow Jesus – the hardest thing to do, but the centre of the Christian call. And it’s even harder when we realise that – in Jesus’ day – when someone took up their cross, they had already received a death sentence. The only remaining question was the example they would be for others in their last few hours. That’s how Jesus lived his entire life, and that’s how we’re expected to follow him.
