“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me” … “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:23, 27

About a week later, Jesus’ closest disciples experienced his transfiguration. They were given a glimpse of the kingdom, a revelation of its worth and its eternal nature. They understood the kingdom was worth any sacrifice. Even the sacrifice of denying their dreams and ambitions, and dying to the things of this world. God’s kingdom is worth the sacrifice.
