Luke 9:23 & 24

Scripture Of The Day

And 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.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Luke 9:23 & 24

People are willing to pay a high price for something they value. Is it any surprise that Jesus should demand this much commitment from his followers? There are at least 3 conditions that must be met by people who want to follow Jesus. We must be willing to deny self, to take up our crosses, and to give up our lives. Anything less is superficial lip service.
