Luke 9:24

Context
NETBible

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, 1  but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.

Lu 17:33; Ac 20:23,24; Heb 11:35; Re 2:10; Re 12:11

NET © Notes

sn The point of the saying whoever wants to save his life will lose it is that if one comes to Jesus then rejection by many will certainly follow. If self-protection is a key motivation, then one will not respond to Jesus and will not be saved. One who is willing to risk rejection will respond and find true life.
