“Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” (Mark 8:34), (Luke 9:23) (Matthew 16:24). 1. Self-denial
2. Take up his cross daily.
3. Follow me.
This is the great commission of Matthew 28:18-20–to go into all the world and make disciples. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. Teach them self-denial, to take up their cross, and follow me.
