Luke 9:23-27 Common English Bible (CEB)

23 Jesus said to everyone, “All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross daily, and follow me. 24  All who want to save their lives will lose them. But all who lose their lives because of me will save them. 25  What advantage do people have if they gain the whole world for themselves yet perish or lose their lives? 26  Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Human One[a] will be ashamed of that person when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 27  I assure you that some standing here won’t die before they see God’s kingdom.”

Following Jesus

57 As Jesus and his disciples traveled along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”

58 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Human One[a] has no place to lay his head.”

59 Then Jesus said to someone else, “Follow me.”

He replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead. But you go and spread the news of God’s kingdom.”

61 Someone else said to Jesus, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say good-bye to those in my house.”

62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand on the plow and looks back is fit for God’s kingdom.”
