Wesley's Notes for Mark 8:36


8:34 And when he called the people - To hear a truth of the last importance, and one that equally concerned them all. Let him deny himself - His own will, in all things small and great, however pleasing, and that continually: And take up his cross - Embrace the will of God, however painful, daily, hourly, continually. Thus only can he follow me in holiness to glory.

8:35 #Mt 16:25|; Lu 9:24; Lu 17:33; John 12:25.

8:38 Whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words - That is, avowing whatever I have said (particularly of self denial and the daily cross) both by word and action. #Mt 10:32|; Lu 9:26; Lu 12:8.
