And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23
What is Walking The Cross Ministries?
Walking The Cross is more than just a ministry. It's a direct command from Jesus Christ Himself. In multiple spots in the New Testament, we find Jesus telling those that are listening to Him that following Him and taking up our cross daily are parallel to each other; Matt. 10:38, Matt. 16:24, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23 and Luke 14:27.
Back in 2021, the command from GOD came to me loud and clear. He told me I needed to build a cross and walk it in the streets of my local area. But as most tend to do, I procrastinated and was lazy & foolish with what GOD entrusted me with, and I buried my masters talent in the ground. The whispers grew louder to the point that I just couldn't ignore His voice any longer. I reached out to my dad and told him what GOD put on my heart to do, and asked him to help me design the cross that I was to carry.
My first experience at Walking The Cross occurred on Oct. 9, 2021. It was at that moment, I knew exactly what my calling in life was... to take up my literal cross and follow Jesus daily. I tried Walking The Cross as much as I could, but with being a husband, a dad and working a full time job, the experiences weren't as frequent as I'd hoped. So I chose to let it settle at being something that I thought would only happen once or twice a month... but GOD had other plans for this ministry. He literally intervened in a way that could only be recognized as the moving of His plan on my life.
Stepping out in faith, my wife and I trusted GOD's calling, and we met this ministry head on. Each step of this journey has left a mark and an imprint on our life, reminding us that we walk by faith and not by sight. I hope to see you on the streets of my city, Walking The Cross.
