We all are suppose to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow after Jesus; indeed. Denying ourselves, sometimes is a hard task to follow; but if we can pray about it, asking God for his help to help us to move self out of the way. The cross is a burden that's hard to bear, but we must bear it by putting on the whole armor of God; praying for strength and courage.. and pick up our cross and follow after Jesus. Even working our ministry, self sometimes get in our way, but we have to deny ourselves and sometimes our families because we want to be worthy of God's calling.
