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)

Translation of Titus 2:6-8

[Completed as part of a paper for my "Ministry of Leadership" class.]

6 Urge the young men likewise to be sensible 7 about everything, presenting yourself as an example of good works, with purity in doctrine, dignity, 8 sound speech beyond reproach, so that the opponent shall be made ashamed, having nothing bad to say about us.

[Note: punctuation of vv. 6-7, without a sentence break after v.6, and with a comma after "everything" in v. 7, follows editors' suggestion in Greek texts NA27 and UBS4, MacArthur's note on the text, and is close to HCSB translation.]
