24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me". Matthew 16:24 KJV
"If any man will come after Me," said Jesus, "the condition is that he must leave something behind," viz., his right to himself. Is Jesus Christ worth it, or am I one of those who accept His salvation but thoroughly object to giving up my right to myself to Him?
