Luke 14:25-27 Contemporary English Version

25 Large crowds were walking along with Jesus, when he turned and said:
26 You cannot be my disciple, unless you love me more than you love your father and mother, your wife and children, and your brothers and sisters. You cannot follow Me unless you love Me more than you love your own life.
27 You cannot be my disciple unless you carry your own cross and follow me.

a. Read the above verses carefully.   Some of you might have never read this before in your life.   Truth is, Jesus really did say that “You cannot follow Me unless you love Me more than you love your own life.  You cannot be Jesus’ disciple unless you carry your own cross and follow Jesus.

Let this sink in:

You cannot follow Jesus unless you love Jesus more than you love your own life.

You cannot follow Jesus unless you love Jesus more than you love your own life.

You cannot follow Jesus unless you love Jesus more than you love your own life.

-Leonard Ravenhill

Luke 9:23-25 New King James Version
Take Up the Cross and Follow Him

23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.
25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?


“From my many years of experience I can unhesitatingly say that the cross bears those who bear the cross.”  -Sadhu Sundar Singh

“Jesus clearly said that the preconditions of becoming a follower of Christ, or a Christian, is to deny yourself daily, take up your cross daily, and follow Christ daily. All those that become Christians and stay Christians are those that are willing to make this daily decision.” -Johnson and Pearl

Gal 5:24  “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

“No Christian can successfully deny self and crucify his flesh without putting prayer first thing every morning.”     -Johnson and Pearl

“Those who determine not to put self to death will never see the will of God fulfilled in their lives. Those who ought to become the light of the world must necessarily burn and become less and less. By denying self, we are able to win others. 」  -Sadhu Sundar Singh

How important is it crucify the flesh?

How important is it crucify the flesh?

“How important is it crucify the flesh daily? Without it the Christian cannot humble self, deny self, deeply repent, and grow in hunger for God.  And without humility, repentance, hunger, prayer and holiness, a person will not be able to receiving God’s blessings, promises, power, and revival.”   -Johnson and Pearl

“Before the cross, those that are not willing to deny self are those that love themselves too much!” -Johnson and Pearl

Our flesh often wants us to choose sinfulness, but the Holy Spirit wants us to choose holiness everyday, so God can prepare us to be holy vessels to carry His power, glory, and revival.” -Johnson and Pearl

Gal 5:16  “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 2:20 NKJV

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Galatians 6:14  NIV

14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

“I am dead to all desire of reputation and greatness, either in life, or after death; all I long for is to be holy, humble, and crucified to the world.” -David Brainerd

Mark 14:37-38  NIV

37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” he said to Peter, “are you asleep? Couldn’t you keep watch for one hour?

38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

“If you have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts, and if you have carried your cross everyday and denied self, then you will naturally have no need and no desire for any worldly TV, sports, and entertainment.”   -Johnson and Pearl


There can be no question that the biggest hindrances to revival are sin, idolatry, covetousness, lust, selfishness, pride, prayerlessness, worldliness, sports, and entertainment.” -Johnson and Pearl

The person that truly loves God with all of his heart and persistently “desires" God’s revival, glory, and power; there is no need and no more room for sports, entertainment, lust, the love of money, watching TV, and sinning.” -Johnson and Pearl

quote  “Anything that cools my love for Christ is the world."

“If revival is being withheld from us it is because some idol remains still enthroned; because we still insist in placing our reliance in human schemes.” -Jonathan Goforth.

“Anything that you love more than Jesus is an idol, I don’t care what it is."   -Leonard Ravenhill

Philippians 3:8,10  KJV

8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Philippians 3:8,10  Amplified Bible

8 But more than that, I count everything as loss compared to the priceless privilege and supreme advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with Him—a joy unequaled].  For His sake I have lost everything, and I consider it all garbage, so that I may gain Christ,

10 And this, so that I may know Him [experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely] and [in that same way experience] the power of His resurrection [which overflows and is active in believers], and [that I may share] the fellowship of His sufferings, by being continually conformed [inwardly into His likeness even] to His death [dying as He did];

“I have made the choice, I choose that this life shall be holy, used for God at any cost, at any price.”   (Kathryn Kuhlman)

“death to self, two wills having becoming as one." (Kathryn Kuhlman)

“I surrender unto Him all there was of me; everything!  Then for the first time I realized what it meant to have real power.” -Kathryn Kuhlman

“Sin is blatant mutiny against God.”  -Oswald Chambers

Luke 12:42 NKJV “And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food [at the right time]in due season?

“Today, Christ can adopt any puppy and it will be more faithful than a modern day Christian.” -Johnson and Pearl


“If a dog can faithful to its master, Christians can be faithful to Christ.” -Johnson and Pearl

The failure of today’s Christianity can be attributed to failure to preach the true gospel, failure to put away idols, failure to crucify the flesh daily, failure to  depart from sin daily, failure to faithfully pray for revival, the repentance of lost sinners, presidents, and those in government and authority." -Johnson and Pearl

Urgent Yellow Note 矢量圖像和插圖

“The most urgent task for every Christian is to crucify the flesh daily. Jesus said the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. (Mark 14:38) But if you crucify the flesh daily then you will stop sinning, and your spirit will rise up and start praying.  If you continue to crucify the flesh daily, then the Spirit of God will lead you to pray for the Outpouring of the Spirit, also known as revival.  Without revival sinners will not repent and surrender to the cross and the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.”  -Johnson and Pearl

Today, over 90% of churches are NOT preaching the pure and real gospel

The most urgent task for every Christian is to crucify the flesh

What is the pure gospel of Jesus Christ?
