Luke: Death Foretold (Luke 9:22-27 NLT)-Jon Furman

Luke 9:22 (NLT)
“The Son of Man must suffer many terrible things,” he said. “He will be rejected by the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He will be killed, but on the third day he will be raised from the dead.”

Luke 9:23 (NLT)
Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me.

Luke 9:24 (NLT)
If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

Psuche – Soul/Living Self/Way of Thinking

Luke 9:25 (NLT)
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?

John 15:20 (NIV)
Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.

1 Peter 4:1–2 (NIV)
“…since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.”

Application Points:

  • Assume Suffering
  • Anticipate Difficulty
  • Await the Rewards

James 1:12 (NLT)
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
