Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

23And he said to all, If anyone would come after me, let him hdeny himself and itake up his cross jdaily and follow me. 24For kwhoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 lFor what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26For mwhoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed nwhen he comes in ohis glory and the glory of the Father and of pthe holy angels.
