Matthew 16:24

"Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'If anyone would
come after me, he must deny himself and take up his
cross and follow me." (NIV)

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will
come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his
cross, and follow me." (KJV)

Following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ is not for
the weak or fragile hearted. When we follow Christ,
we refuse to recognize or acknowledge our own agenda.
We disown our rights to ourselves and take on the
responsibilities given to us as His fellow heirs of the

Heavenly Father, we cannot deny ourselves in our own
strength. We are humans with the weaknesses and
self-centeredness that separated us from you in the
first place. Help us, Oh God, to draw from the strength
of the Holy Spirit, so that we can deny ourselves and
follow after your ways that we will bring honor to your
name. In Jesus' name, Amen.
