The Cross Around My Neck

by Reverend Leroy Smith,
New Birth Ministry

I wear this cross around my neck as a simple reminder to myself of the fact that I am a Christian.

No matter where I may be, this cross is not magic nor is it a good luck charm. It isn’t meant to protect me from every physical harm. It’s not for all the world to see.

It’s simply an understanding between my Savior and me.

When I look in the mirror, I see the cross. It is there to remind me of the price He paid for me. It reminds me too, to be thankful for all the blessings of my life. And it reminds me to strive to serve Him better all the time – in all that I do and say.

It gives me the peace and comfort to share with all what my Master means to me.

So, I wear this cross around my neck, day and night, reminding me – no one but me – that Jesus Christ is Lord of my Life – All the Time.
