“Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed him (Matthew 9:9; NLT).
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me” (Matthew 16:24; NLT).
“And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27; NLT).
Please help me
To take up my cross,
And follow you today,
As your disciple.
