Matthew 10:34Matthew 10:39

5. The Disturbance Brought In by the King
and the Way of the Cross to Follow Him

34 aDo not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth; I have not 1come to bring peace, but a sword.

35 For I have come to set men at variance: a man against his afather, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;

36 And a man's aenemies will be those of his 1household.

37 He who loves afather or mother 1above Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter above Me is not worthy of Me;

38 And he who does not 1take his across and bfollow after Me is not worthy of Me.

39 He who 1finds his asoul-life shall 1lose it, and he who loses his soul-life for My sake shall find it.
