He who loves Father or Mother more than me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.
The cross is the hard road. The cross is in the valley.
His cross must be our central focus. His cross is our redemption.
