Bible: Luke 9:23-26

A Call to Discipleship

9:23 Then 1  he said to them all, 2 If anyone wants to become my follower, 3  he must deny 4  himself, take up his cross daily, 5  and follow me. 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, 6  but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 9:25 For what does it benefit a person 7  if he gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself? 9:26 For whoever is ashamed 8  of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person 9  when he comes in his glory and in the glory 10  of the Father and of the holy angels.
