‘Take up your cross’

By Eric Dowler

"Jesus charged his followers, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." "Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Although this is a faith-based message for Christians to live a Godly life, the main idea applies to every dreamer who aspires to do something difficult. We may be faced with opposition, but we are called to bear our burdens and get it done anyway. We may be tempted to quit or give up, but we must follow the narrow path set before us to success. If we really believe in something, we must embrace each challenge and overcome it with the end goal in mind."
