The Man With The Cross, "Just Call me Paul"

We had to stop. Inquiring hearts wanted to ask." WHY?" "Pick up your cross and follow Me." ..."What is your name?"... " Just call me Paul." He would give no credit to himself. Walking from Tulsa Oklahoma,"Paul" has just reached 1600 miles as he reached the middle of Mill Spring, N.C. He felt called to share the Gospel in this way. He started in October of 2013 when he surrendered his life totally to the Lord. Paul will stay in Columbus tonight and then head to the Harley Davidson rally in Spartanburg, S.C. this Saturday where he will join other Crusaders for Jesus. 
(exit 78 off Interstate 85.) 

He praised God for a comfortable winter because Church Builders of Gaffney put him up through the winter.I look forward to reading "Paul's" blog at justcallmepaul.wordpress.com. It was nice to listen to this man of God, telling us with his whole heart, about how great God is and about the Love of Jesus Christ.He told my son to read his Bible. D.J. took that to heart. We prayed at the road side as cars passed by.Another person stopped and gave him a fresh drink and shook his hand, thanked him and blessed him.

It was the second time today that I saw "Jesus with skin on." Pick up your cross and Follow me." It couldn't get any clearer than that. May we never be ashamed of Jesus who loved us enough to die...for us.

Luke 9:23-26 New International Version (NIV)
 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me
and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

Dear Lord, I pray a simple prayer, please help me carry the cross to follow you.
