Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

23And he said to all, If anyone would come after me, let him fdeny himself and gtake up his cross hdaily and follow me. 24For iwhoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 jFor what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26For kwhoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed lwhen he comes in mhis glory and the glory of the Father and of nthe holy angels. 27But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not otaste death puntil they see the kingdom of God.”
