The Cross Lifts Me. . .
"You are safe only as, in perfect submission and obedience, you connect yourselves to Christ. The yoke is easy, for Christ carries the weight. As you lifet the burden of the cross, it will become light; and
that cross is to you a pledge of eternal life. It is the privilege of each to follow gladly after Christ, exclaiming at every step, 'Thy gentleness hath made me great.' But if we would travel heavenward, we must take the Word of God as our lesson-book. In the words of inspiration we must read our lessons day by day. . . .To redeem man,
Christ became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
