Q. I am a true believer just trying to become stronger in my faith in God. I was wondering if it is wrong to wear the cross as a necklace. As I read the Bible today I came across Matthew 10:38 and that is where my question arose. If that is not what he meant, what does that verse mean?
A. There is no problem with wearing a cross to declare your faith in Jesus. By the phrase “take up his cross and follow me” in Matt. 10:38, Jesus was referring to our need to put our old life with its earthly goals and aspirations to death, and dedicate our new life to the Lord to do with as He determines.
