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.
