Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. And he said,“The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” Then he said to them all:“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. 

Luke 9:21-25

  1. How does Jesus describe God’s grander vision for his life (v.22)?
  2. What does Jesus compare the difficult things we must sometimes face to be disciples?
  3. In what ways has God used the difficult things in your life to make you a better disciple?
