We are to labour for God's kingdom-not simply follow Jesus. Christ had many followers but few disciples. The Synoptic Gospels record Jesus saying, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." This passage is frequently quoted, but do we deny self, take up our cross, and follow Him? It takes guts to follow the Lord, and glory comes after one's service. In God's Precious Children, David A. Darlington explores what it truly means to be a disciple. Do you have the guts to deny self, and become a labourer for His kingdom?
