Great Sermon! Thank you for this sermon. You are very easy to follow and clear.
I'm learning that saying one is willing to submit to Christ and take up the cross is very different, a world away in fact, from actually doing it. Even the idea is very noble and can appeal to self, but the actual doing it, where the rubber meets the road, holds no glory for the flesh. Matthew 11:29 states that this yoke provides rest. I would like to rest in Christ in all circumstances. I think it must be a one foot at a time kind of submission, saturating every part of our lives. I am praying for the Holy Spirit to make this a reality in my life, not just a noble idea.
Thank you! ðŸ˜€
