“At the heart of Christ’s call to discipleship is the daily application of His cross in each life. Yet one seldom hears in evangelical circles Christ’s definitive declaration: “And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me…[and] forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27-33). The call to discipleship must be honestly faced. Through the cross we die to self and begin to live to our Lord in resurrection power (Galatians 2:20). Indeed, Christ’s death on the cross would have been a hollow act if it did not bring forth new life, for now and for eternity.” Dave Hunt, An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith, P.87.
