http://bible.com/116/mrk.8.34-35.nlt Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.
Are you ready to sacrifice yourself and your wants and needs to follow Jesus? Christ?
