Also, current teachers please call or text Sally McDiffitt THIS WEEK if you have classroom supplies (markers, glue, pencils, etc.) that need replenished.

     And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? (Mark 8:34-36 ESV)

What does it mean in your life to “deny” yourself? What is involved when you take your cross up daily (as a parallel passage says) and follow Jesus?
