Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.1
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.2
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him3 when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.4
I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
