Jesus wasn’t saying our light has to be perfect, just consistent so that the world would see it and be drawn to Him. When war in Iraq began in 2003, I wrote our Southern Baptist chaplains to let them know we were praying for them. Our chap lains were there in the battle, shining for Jesus and seasoning the culture around them. I will never forget the story of Private James Keil, who was bap tized in the desert. Bottled water was poured into a hole in the ground as Private Keil professed his faith in Christ and was bap tized by a chaplain.
My friend, if you’re a dead man as far as this world is con cerned, you don’t have any plans of your own. If you have died, you don’t own anything. Your earthly relationships change when you die. The only thing that ultimately matters to a man of God is his relationship to his Master. Today, however, Jesus’ call to bear our cross has largely been reduced to the idea of bearing up under a trial, an illness, or some difficult person or circumstance. But your wife or your children are not your cross—and you’re not your wife’s cross, either.
But Jesus wasn’t teaching hatred for our family. He was using a language technique to say that our love and devo tion for Him has to be far above any human relationship.

He was simply saying that not even the most wonderful and intimate human relationships can come before our devotion to Him if we are going to be His disciples. We Must Carry Our Cross to Truly Follow Jesus I can imagine the looks on the faces of Jesus’ listeners after this opening statement.
