    The Cross quotes by:    

Self-pity, self-love, fear of suffering, withdrawal from the cross: these are some of the manifestations of the soul life, for its prime motivation is the self-preservation. It is exceedingly reluctant to endure any loss.

    Author: Watchman Nee

If he but casts one longing glance it is sufficient to disclose to us that he does not truly recognize where the world stands in relation to the cross. Only after one is actually willing to offer his soul life to death will he be fit to follow the "Sermon on the Mount" without flinching.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Gaining spiritual life is conditional on suffering loss. We cannot measure our lives in terms of "gain"; they must be measured in terms of "loss." Our real capacity lies not in how much we retain but in how much has been poured out. The power of love is attested by love's sacrifice. If our hearts are not separated from the love of the world, our soul life has yet to go through the cross.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Unless self love is abandoned the believer shall forever shrink back when called actually to take up the cross for Christ.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Let us gaze upon our Lord Jesus Who "endured the cross, despising the shame." The race set before us is none other than that of His despising the shame and enduring the cross.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The cross grants us position, the Holy Spirit gives us experience.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Historically, Pentecost followed Calvary; experientially, being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit follows the bearing of the cross.

    Author: Watchman Nee

We are bid to take, not to make our cross.

    Author: William Gurnall

We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our place, and bear our cross, and thereby rob us of our crown.

    Author: William Booth

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.

    Author: William Penn

Faith is the acknowledgment of the entire absence of all goodness in us, and the recognition of the cross as the substitute for all the want on our part. The whole work is His, not ours, from first to last.

    Author: Horatius Bonar

Taking up my "cross" means a life voluntarily surrendered to God.

    Author: A.W. Pink
