    Then [Jesus] said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
    —Luke 9:23 (NIV)
    If our common life is not a common course of humility, self-denial, renunciation of the world, poverty of spirit, and heavenly affection, we don’t live the lives of Christians.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life [1728], London: Methuen, 1899, p. 10-11 (see the book)
    See also Luke 9:23; Matt. 16:24; Mark 8:34; John 13:34-35; Acts 2:40; 1 Cor. 7:29-31; Gal. 6:14; Jas. 4:4; 1 Pet. 1:22; 1 John 2:15-17; 3:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, conform me to Your will.
