The Cross Is My Light

(August 14, 1990 14) Jesus said, "The sole purpose of suffering is to perfect you. All your life you have run from suffering. When you run from suffering, you run from Me. The cross is My love for the world. Carry the cross, carry My love. You can come to the cross through My Mother. You can come to the cross through Me. The Cross is life. I am life. I am love. I am light. Walk from the cross, then walk from Me. Then you walk into darkness. The cross is not darkness, the cross is light." Nancy said "Lord, why can't I embrace the cross?" Jesus said, "Nancy, if the cross is love and life shouldn't you want to embrace it? You are embracing Me. Is there not joy in embracing Me?"
