Picture yourself in a crowd listening to Jesus teach, and then He makes several challenging commands, such as, you must deny yourself to follow Me; you must take up your cross to follow Me; you will have to lose your life for the sake of the Gospel in order to find it. Please open your Bible to Mark chapter eight, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola explains what Jesus meant and how we need to respond as he completes his study of verses thirty-four through thirty-eight.
