Experience the Unspeakable Joy of Following Jesus
As the approach of spring brings the Easter season, the weeks surrounding the holiday make the ideal time for you to contemplate Jesus taking up the cross and the joy that comes in following His example. In Taking Up Your Cross, Tricia McCary Rhodes has created a meditative and celebratory examination of the most important moment in history.
Jesus made radical demands on those who would follow Him, but more than that, He promised astounding rewards. Today it seems we get caught up in what we can do and ignore the amazing truth of what has been already been done for us by Jesus. The extravagant, unfathomable joy of the crucified life needs to be shouted from the highest place to the body of Christ.
In reading Taking Up Your Cross, you will discover all that is yours in Christ and understand the importance of putting to death those things that hinder your experience of abundant life. This is not a "how-to" book of Christian discipleship or a call to specific action but rather a joyful enticement into following the path of Jesus.
