From the series 'Cruciformed - Discipleship shaped by the Cross' - The Choice (Mark 8:27-9:1)
Following Peter’s confession of who Jesus was, Jesus then predicts his own death which challenges the view of what the Messiah would do. He then challenges those that follow Him must deny themselves and pick up their cross (Mk.8:34). Sacrificing SELF is at the heart of discipleship so what does it mean for us to ‘deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him’?
