24 v Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and w follow Me. 25 "For x whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 "For what y profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or z what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 "For a the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father b with His angels, c and then He will reward each according to his works. 28 "Assuredly, I say to you, d there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
