• The Road Less Traveled (Matthew 16.24-26)

    Between You & Happiness

    There is only one barrier between you and real joy: yourself.
    “There is a way that seems right to a man,
    But its end is the way of death.”
    (Proverbs 14.12, 16.23)

    If You Would Follow Jesus...

    Deny Yourself (Lay “me” Down)
    Hands off the wheel.
    “But what things were gain to me,
    these I have counted loss for Christ.”
    (Philippians 3.7)

    Take Up Your Cross (Lift Him Up)
    Hands on forgiveness.
    “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live,
    but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh
    I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
    (Galatians 2.20)

    Follow Him (Live it Daily)
    Feet in His footsteps
    “Therefore we do not lose heart.
    Even though our outward man is perishing,
    yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.”
    (2 Corinthians 4.16

    ...To Be Happy In Jesus

    Where there is no cross, there can be no crown.
    “Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
    and all the world go free?
    No, there’s across for everyone,
    and there’s a cross for me.”
    (Hymn: “Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone” - Thomas Shepherd)
