Luke 9v23-27 - Taking up the cross

Adobe Acrobat

Jesus had told his disciples that he would be rejected, suffer and die. He would not receive his kingdom, without the cross. Then, he would rise again in great glory. He had not come to fight with earthly or political weapons. He had not come to win a political redemption. He had come to defeat sin, death and hell. To win that, he must go to Calvary. Now, he began to tell his disciples how to follow him.

Luke 9:23-27

23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 26For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. 27But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. (KJV)
