Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:24 - If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:25 - And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:26 - If anyone is ashamed of me and my message, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in his glory and in the glory of the Father and the holy angels.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:45 - But they didn’t know what he meant. Its significance was hidden from them, so they couldn’t understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:47 - But Jesus knew their thoughts, so he brought a little child to his side.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 9:48 - Then he said to them, “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf[fn] welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me also welcomes my Father who sent me. Whoever is the least among you is the greatest.”
