Take up your cross....

I'm working on a post about this right now, but I would like to know...what does this verse mean to you.

Preacher and I were discussing this on the phone yesterday, and I had truly never put a lot of thought into this verse. But now I am.

Luke 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up cross daily, and follow me.
