26 “If anyone comes to Meand does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters,yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.27 Andwhoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.28 Forwhich of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it—
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, andfollow Me.25 Forwhoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.26 For whatprofit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Orwhat will a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?”
28 So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory,you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother[a]or wife or children or[b]lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.
