Matthew 16:24 ~ The Cost of Discipleship

"I'm convinced that Christians have the most difficulty, not because Satan is fighting against them, but because they are fighting against God. We are trying to get that flesh off the cross. We are trying to get our life back. I want to be in charge. I want to accomplish the things that I want to accomplish. Jesus said, 'You must deny yourself and take up your cross and follow behind Me."
