What Is Your One Thing? Date Posted: 18/09/2019
Luke 9:23 23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” Jesus is addressing His disciples here and He is pointing out to them that to be His disciple, they will have to choose one thing.
