MARK 8:34-37

34 Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. 35 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. 36 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?[a] 37 Is anything worth more than your soul?

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: What does Jesus say that you must do in order to follow Him?

Q: Jesus isn’t something to be added. In what ways have you “tried” Jesus? Just by seeing how He might fit in your existing life, or by transforming yourself with Him has the most important?

Q: How will the people around you be affected by a realignment of your life? Will you become a better spouse, sibling, parent, or friend?
