“Then Jesus called the crowd to himself along with his disciples. He said to them, ‘Those who want to follow me must say no to the things they want, pick up their crosses, and follow me. Those who want to save their lives will lose them. But those who lose their lives for me and for the Good News will save them. What good does it do for people to win the whole world yet lose their lives? Or what should a person give in exchange for life?’ ” (Mark 8:34-37 God’s Word©).
