Matthew Chapter: 16 Verses: 24-28
What has a person to offer in exchange for their life?
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let them renounce themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For anyone who wants to save their life will lose it; but anyone who loses their life for my sake will find it. What, then, will a person gain if they win the whole world and ruin their own life?
‘For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and, when he does, he will reward each one according to their behaviour. I tell you the Truth, there are some of these standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming with his kingdom.’
