Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him (A)deny himself and (B)take up his cross (C)daily and follow me. 24 For (D)whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 (E)For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26 For (F)whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed (G)when he comes in (H)his glory and the glory of the Father and of (I)the holy angels. 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not (J)taste death (K)until they see the kingdom of God.”
