Profit and Loss

What have you gained if you have everything the world offers but you’ve lost your own soul?

Matthew 16:21-28; Luke 9:22-27

  • Jesus began to reveal to his disciples that he would be put to death.
  • The disciple protested and promised to defend their master.
  • Jesus declined the offer, and explained that they, too, must suffer.
  • He who would avoid the suffering would miss all spiritual blessings.
  • But some of them would see (at least glimpses of) the kingdom of God.
