A VERY UNPOPULAR TRUTH

A VERY UNPOPULAR TRUTH

 

THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT A BUFFET - SELAH

THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT A BUFFET – SELAH

 

The Cost of Discipleship

(Mark 8:34-38 – KJV)

34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

 

The Cost of Discipleship

(Mark 8:34-38 – Amplified Bible)

“34 Jesus called the crowd together with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me].

35 For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake and the gospel’s will save it [from the consequences of sin and separation from God].

36 For what does it benefit a man to gain the whole world [with all its pleasures], and forfeit his soul?

37 For what will a man give in exchange for his soul and eternal life [in God’s kingdom]?

38 For whoever is ashamed [here and now] of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

(Mark 8:34-38 – Amplified Bible)

SELAH!

  1. HI Joseyphina…..I am truly humbled and honored that you consider me worthy of a blog award nomination however due to repeated insufficient time to meet the requirements to receive these awards and to do so with integrity, I decided a few years ago to make “Unwalled” an award free blog and as such must graciously decline your nomination. Thanks ever so much for the thought, for your support, for your encouragement and for your kind understanding.Blessings, Kim
