Partakers Bible Thought
12 July 2021
“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.

Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” (Luke 9v23-26)

How do we count the cost of following Jesus? What does this mean for the Christian Disciple?
