Mark 8:34-38

“Then he called the crowd to him
along with his disciples and said:
“Whoever wants to be my disciple
must deny themselves
and take up their cross and follow me.
For whoever wants to save their life
will lose it,
but whoever loses their life for me
and for the gospel
will save it.
What good is it for someone
to gain the whole world,
yet forfeit their soul?
Or what can anyone give in exchange
for their soul?
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words
in this adulterous and sinful generation,
the Son of Man will be ashamed of them
when he comes in his Father’s glory
with the holy angels.””
