Mark 8:22-10 - A Blind Man Sees the Road Ahead

Take Up Your Cross

Take Up Your Cross

[Reflective] Hannah Thompson-Holloway
Mark 8:34

Verse 1
Take up your cross, and follow me
Take up your cross, and follow me
Take up your cross, and follow me
Take up your cross, and follow me
To be my disciple, you must learn to deny yourself

Verse 2
To save your life, you must lose it
To save your life, you must lose it
To save your life, you must lose it
To save your life, you must lose it
What good is the world, if you forfeit your soul?

Bridge
Are you ashamed, of me and my words?
Are you ashamed, of me and my words?
If so, then I will be ashamed of you

Verse 3
So take up your cross, and follow me
Take up your cross, and follow me
And to save your life, you must lose it
To save your life, you must lose it
Do this for the gospel, for me, and find yourself.

This conversation awaits your contribution.

We have set this website up to share the resources from the book ‘The Illustrated Gospel Project’,
plus the extra stuff that we couldn’t fit in the book.
But there is still room! Room for what you and your community of faith might create in response to God’s creative Word at work, and at play in your midst.
So if you create a drama, a song, a prayer or a responsive reading, we’d like you to share it.
