2 Timothy 3, Matthew 16: 24-25
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves,.......
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.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
