Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
Born as a Son, led forth as a Lamb, sacrificed as a Sheep, buried as a Man, He rose from the dead as a God, for He was by nature God and man.
He is all things: He judges, and so he is Law; He teaches, and so he is Wisdom; He saves, and so he is Grace; He begets, and so he is Father; He is begotten, and so he is Son; He suffers, and so he is Sacrifice; He is buried, and so he is man; He rises again, and so he is God. This is Jesus Christ, to whom belongs glory for all ages.
