I read a writer’s position on the phrase take up his cross  he stated that it was a figure of speech derived from the Roman custom requiring a man convicted of rebellion against Rome’s sovereign rule to carry the cross-beam (patibulum) to his place of execution. The writer wanted us to see that in order to understand we must started with the proper starting point the historical basis for the phrase. This starting point, as will be shown, leads to an interpretation that cross-bearing means to submit to the authority or rule one formerly rebelled against, or to obey God’s will. Listen in to lesson topic: Surrendering To God’s Agenda also visit us at www.uptopministries.org
