A Call to Discipleship

9:23 Then 5  he said to them all, 6 If anyone wants to become my follower, 7  he must deny 8  himself, take up his cross daily, 9  and follow me. 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, 10  but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 9:25 For what does it benefit a person 11  if he gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself? 9:26 For whoever is ashamed 12  of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person 13  when he comes in his glory and in the glory 14  of the Father and of the holy angels. 9:27 But I tell you most certainly, 15  there are some standing here who will not 16  experience 17  death before they see the kingdom of God.” 18
