Luke 9:22-27

22 a  saying, b  “The Son of Man must c  suffer many things and d  be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on e  the third day be raised.”

Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

23And he said to all, If anyone would come after me, let him f  deny himself and g  take up his cross h  daily and follow me. 24For i  whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 j  For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26For k  whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed l  when he comes in m  his glory and the glory of the Father and of n  the holy angels. 27But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not o  taste death p  until they see the kingdom of God.”
