The Will of the Christian

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

This is our verse for the week.  Notice the verb "desires."  Paul tells us more in Romans.  In chapter 7, Paul uses the word repeatedly as he describes how he wills to follow Christ but is stymied by his sinful flesh. The desire to belong to Jesus and to live the holy life sure ain't gonna show as it ought.  But still, Jesus invites us to hold fast to Him.
