Mark 8:34-35 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Take Up Your Cross

34 Summoning the crowd along with His disciples, He said to them, “If anyone wants to be My follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me and the gospel will save it.

1 Corinthians 11:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

11 Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ.

Philippians 2:5-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Christ’s Humility and Exaltation

Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus,

who, existing in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God
as something to be used for His own advantage.[a]
Instead He emptied Himself
by assuming the form of a slave,
taking on the likeness of men.
And when He had come as a man
in His external form,
He humbled Himself by becoming obedient
to the point of death—
even to death on a cross.
