There’s an old German theological phrase, “Das Liebe Kreuz” which means “The Dear Cross.” While Christians can understand why Jesus’ cross is dear to us, the phrase isn’t just talking about Jesus’ cross, but the crosses that we bear as Christians too! How can suffering for our faith, and suffering in general be something “dear” to us, when we’re always trying to alleviate or eradicate suffering from our lives? Hear Jesus’ words, as he reminds us why the cross isn’t just a necessity, but a blessing!
