gain & lose

Mark 8:34 Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, Jesus said,

"If any of you wants to be my follower,

     you must turn from your selfish ways & your selfish ambition,

     take up your cross,

     and follow me.

35 If you try to hang on to your life,

        you will lose it.

But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News,

       you will save it.

36 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world

        but lose your own soul?

37 Is anything worth more than your soul?

38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days,

the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

If these people could speak to us now,

     I wonder what they would say to those people in the previous list in regards to Jesus' statement.
