I’m not talking about just saying Jesus is Lord and Savior.

We are talking about the taking action part.

I learned this lessons from Jordan Peterson.

Paraphrased for levity.

Jesus said,

“pick up your cross and follow me.”

Pick up can mean:

  • own up to
  • take full responsibility
  • take full ownership
  • accept like accepting a gift or job

Cross represents:

  • a heavy burden
  • an unfair burden
  • the heaviest burden you can carry

Follow me:

  • take action
  • use adversity to transform your life
  • overcome your lower brain’s thinking

And that’s the whole point of that section of that conversation. Discussed in modern language.

Thank you for reading.
