Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

Luke 9

23 And he said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him t deny himself and u take up his cross v daily and follow me. 24 For u whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 w For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26 For x whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed y when he comes in z his glory and the glory of the Father and of a the holy angels. 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not b taste death c until they see the kingdom of God."
