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 Romans 1:18-25. "God's Wrath Revealed"

[Completed for my Greek exegesis class this semester.]

18 For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all impiety and unrighteousness of men– those suppressing the truth in unrighteousness– 19 because that which is known about God is manifest in them; for God manifested it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him– that is, his eternal power and deity– are clearly seen from the creation of the world, being understood by what has been made, so that they are inexcusable. 21 For though they knew God, they didn’t glorify nor give thanks to him as God, but they became worthless in their reasoning and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they were made foolish 23 and they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal Man, birds, quadrupeds and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts into sexual impurity to dishonor their bodies among themselves. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for the lie and they worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
