Are You A Wearer Or Bearer?

I was speaking to a good mate the other night and he was telling me of a witnessing encounter had during the week. The young lady was wearing a crucifix, which opened the way for a pointed question: "Are you are wearer or a bearer?". After coughing and spluttering a bit of an answer out it was clear...

I've been thinking about that question since. "Are you a wearer or a bearer?"

Is Christ something external to me, or is he a vital reality? Is He the bread of life to me or something I'd rather just snack on occasionally? Do I want His salvation but not His Lordship? Do I want Him to do all the cross bearing or will I take up my cross daily and follow Him?

How about you?
