“Luke 14:27 is my favorite verse because in order for me to be a disciple (one who acquires the customs and habits) of Christ, I must carry my cross, which means death to sin, death to self, and death to the comfort zones of life!

'And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.'"

—Donald D. Dunn
