deny yourself

take up your cross

follow HIM

live your life for your purposes & you lose it

give up your life for HIS purposes & you save it

if you’re ashamed of HIM as you live out your life in this cesspool of a world, HE’LL be ashamed of you when you stand before HIM in all HIS FATHER’S GLORY with HIS holy angels present

22: my GOD, my GOD, why have YOU forsaken me?

23: the LORD is my shepherd; i shall not want.

 

22: GOD, i cry all day and all night, and YOU do not answer.

23: HE restores my soul.

 

22: i am a worm and not a man; i am despised by the people.

23: i fear no evil; YOU are with me.

 

22: strong bulls surround me; they open their mouths to devour me like a roaring lion.

23: YOU prepare a banquet table for me in the presence of my enemies.

 

22: my bones are out of joint, my heart melts like wax, my strength is dried up, my tongue sticks to my jaws, i lay in the dust of death

23: YOU annoint my head with oil.

 

22: dogs and evildoers surround me.

23: goodness and mercy follow me.

 

22: they have pierced my hands and feet; they stare and gloat over me.

23: i will live in the LORD’s house forever.
