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?
