The 13th Davar Bible Seminar
12/26〜12/31/2017 At Camp Cedar Falls
Speaker: Pastor Toru Asai


If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me (Mat 16:24).

All Christians are familiar with these words of Jesus, but when these words are spoken in church, many look downcast, and think to themselves, "Do I have to? But I can't, and do not want to."

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it (v. 25).

To lose your own life is a miserable defeat, but to find your life in Christ is a joyous victory. Who wants defeat, and who does not want victory?

What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul (v. 26)?

Your soul is so valuable that the Son of God came and took up his cross and died for you. The other side of this fact is that you also took up your cross and died with him so that you could live a new life. What a blessing! The cross you take up is the proof of this spiritual reality.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Cor 1:18).

For those who are saved through Christ, the cross works as a staff that brings God's miracles. With this staff, Jacob crossed the Jordan, Moses divided the Red Sea, David fought with Goliath, and the Lord comforts his sheep. We can do nothing without this staff. There is no reason to become despondent about taking up one’s cross. So many Christians are either ignorant about the cross as the staff of miracles, or misunderstanding it completely. In fact, if you knew this truth, you would also say, "Get behind me, Satan!"

I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two groups. Save me, I pray, from the hand of my brother Esau … (Gen 32:10-11)
