Would You Be A Christian? Mark 8:34-36
34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
1. The rigid requirements
"Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
2. The compelling causes
Losing your life to save it.
3. The bountiful benefits
It effects your Eternal life
It effects your earthly labour
