Take up your cross

Do not try to coast in God's Kingdom.

Remember, you can only coast downhill.

A lukewarm Christian thinks he can coast his way uphill into Heavenly glory.

Remember, coasters are little circles of paper, that are place under glasses of beer.

Once they have served their purpose, they are thrown away into the garbage can.

To go up hill in His Kingdom requires enormous efforts and personal sacrifices.

If any man will follow God, let him sell all he has and take up His cross.
