    23 And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [i disown himself, j forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, k refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [l cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also].
    24 For whoever would preserve his life and save it will lose and destroy it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he will preserve and save it [m from the penalty of eternal death].
