Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Bible translation: Isaiah 4

1 And in that day seven women will take hold of one man to say,
“We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes,
only let your name be upon us– remove our shame!”
2 In that day the bud of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious,
and the fruit of the land majestic and splendid, for Israel’s survivors,
3 And the one remaining in Zion
and the one surviving in Jerusalem–
even every one written among the living in Jerusalem–
will be called holy.
4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion
and cleansed away the blood of Jerusalem from her midst
by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of destruction,
5 Then the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion
(over her sacred assemblies)
a cloud by day,
and smoke and the brightness of a flaming fire by night,
because glory will be a canopy over all.
6 And a booth will be a shade from the heat by day
and a place of refuge
and a place of shelter from the storm and from the rain.
