Then He said to [them] all, "If anyone wants to come with a Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, b and follow Me.
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it.
What is a man benefited if he gains the whole world, yet loses or forfeits himself?
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and that of the Father and the holy angels.
I tell you the truth: there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God."
