“Jesus told his disciples, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. 26For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?’”
– Mt. 16:24-26, esp. v. 26 (NRSV)
I am sorry if I had not been posting as often as I wanted, but I had been thinking about a lot lately to write about it publicly.
