Take Up Your Cross Daily

If anyone desire to come after Me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily,
and follow Me.   (Luke 9:23)

If we have to take up our cross daily, that would mean we are not going to become free of the cross any time in this life.  Every. single. day. we're going to be back at it, living with that sinful nature, bearing the burden of not being as pure and holy as we'd like, and finding our only hope and rest in what Jesus has done to forgive that icky sinfulness.
