Sharing in the cross

What part does the cross of Christ play in my discipleship? Here Paul writes of the scars suffering has left on his person. He tells me that it is through the cross that I become a new creature. Am I up for this sort of discipleship or is it too hard, perhaps for others, not me? World weariness and spiritual trial take their toll on a disciple. The new creature Paul speaks of may bear these scars outwardly but he or she radiates inner peace and mercy to others.
