Discussion Questions: Luke 9:23-27

  1. What does it mean to deny yourself? Why is this a requirement or prerequisite to follow after Jesus?
  2. What does it mean to take up a cross? 
  3. Consider the command of Christ to “take up your cross daily, and follow him” and then give special attention to the words “your”, “daily”, and “follow”. What do these words communicate about being a follower of Jesus?
  4. Discuss the three reasons that Christ presents as to why denying yourself, taking up your cross, and following after him is the best decision you can make.
  5. Discuss ways in which you can deny yourself and take up your cross daily. 
  6. Paradoxically, by losing your life in this way, you will find it. Discuss how this is true in eternity and today.
