My Gospel Reflections for Friday February 18: Mark 8:34-9:1

My Reflections:
What is this cross that Jesus wants us to carry once we decide to follow Him? Will we be overburdened or overwhelmed by this cross?

The cross that Jesus mentioned is the cross of suffering but don’t you worry because you will not be overburdened by this cross. No matter how hard this cross will be you will be able to carry it, for Jesus will be there to help you carry it.

It is also in carrying our life’s crosses that we will have a clearer picture of who really is Jesus. And Jesus will become more real to us because of this cross. Life with Jesus is not a bed of roses; it’s rather a bed of crosses.

But don’t you worry for He will be there for you to help you carry it every step of the way. …
