Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

Matthew 16

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, let him w deny himself and x take up his cross and follow me. 25 For x whoever would save his life 1 will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For y what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or z what shall a man give in return for his soul? 27 a For the Son of Man is going to come with b his angels in the glory of his Father, and c then he will repay each person according to what he has done. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not d taste death e until they see the Son of Man f coming in his kingdom."
