"If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." (Matthew 16:24 NRSV)
I believe it was Yogi Berra who once said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it!"

It may be that you are standing at a fork in the road. You have never made up your mind about Jesus. You have admired his great teachings. You want your children to learn about him in Sunday School. You have no question about his moral superiority over every man or woman who has ever lived. But you have never been able to say with Simon Peter, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." You have never made Him the Lord of your life. Our Scripture for today offers you a choice--a decision for you to make. "If any want to become my followers..." Not admirer, but disciple. Not fan, but follower. Not church member, but bearer of the cross.

Son of the living God, be my savior today and forever. Amen.
