PRAY and pick up the CROSS: We must every day PRAY WITHOUT CEASING (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and take up the CROSS OF JESUS (Luke 9:23).

When we PRAY TO GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS, we are seeking continually to be with God.

The word of God says: “Seek the LORD and his strength, [SEEK HIS FACE CONTINUALLY]” (1 Chronicles 16:11).

“But [WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM]: for he that [COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS], and that [HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM]” (Hebrews 11:6).

Our Lord Jesus says: “[GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]; [BUT THE HOUR COMETH, AND NOW IS, WHEN THE TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” (John 4:24, 23).

When we take up the CROSS OF JESUS we are faithfully following to be with Jesus.

Our Lord Jesus also says: “[IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME], [LET HIM DENY HIMSELF], and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY], and [FOLLOW ME]” (Luke 9:23).

“[AND HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS], and followeth after me, [IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]” (Matthew 10:38).

“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. [IF ANY MAN SERVE ME, LET HIM FOLLOW ME; AND WHERE I AM, THERE SHALL ALSO MY SERVANT BE]” (Matthew 12:24-26).

Let us this day keep PRAYING TO GOD IN TRUTH AND IN SPIRIT in the name of Jesus, and faithfully keep taking up the CROSS following JESUS to the End.

The Apostle Paul warned said: “[TAKE HEED, BRETHREN], lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. [FOR WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST, IF WE HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR CONFIDENCE STEDFAST UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life” (Jude 1:21).

“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
