The Way of the Cross

If ye be reproached for the Name of Christ, happy are ye.—1 Peter 4:14.
When Jesus was upon earth, there were always those who criticized Him and found fault with Him, and those who stood with Him; and so today, any one who obeys the call of God, leaving all to follow Jesus, will be criticized and misunderstood.
There are many who profess to love Jesus, but when it means self-denial or any sacrifice for Jesus’ sake, they are enemies to the Cross of Christ. However, the “way of the Cross leads home.”
